This Fellowship has also shown me that there is a place in this world where graphic design can really help people.” –– Elijah Bobo

What’s the Fellowship for Change in Design?

The CUP Fellowship for Change in Design is an effort to do our part to support the development of a pipeline of skilled individuals from marginalized communities into the design fields, and to dismantle the systemic biases that stand in the way of their advancement as leaders in these fields. We created the Fellowship as a way to leverage CUP’s unique position at the confluence of design and social justice to promote change in the design fields.

The program supports Fellows in gaining the skills, contacts, and experience to help them excel in their design careers. The Fellow works at CUP full-time for a year, collaborating on our community-engaged design projects as part of the CUP team, working as an in-house designer, and participating in mentoring opportunities.
