In Year One of the program, students will be inducted into the Fred Rogers Scholars and receive an introduction to Fred Rogers and the Archive. During the fall and spring semesters, the students will meet weekly to discuss readings and activities, visit the Archive and engage with the FRS team of advisers. Students will work with the team of advisers to prepare and complete research on a topic of their choice, related to the work of Fred Rogers.
Year Two of the program will be dedicated to the completion of a service-learning project related to the work of Fred Rogers. During the fall semester, students will meet weekly and begin to plan their group service project, including how it relates to Fred Rogers, as well as all necessary contacts to complete project. During the spring semester, students will complete the service project.
In Year Three of the program, students will work with the FRS team of advisers to define the personal culminating project they will pursue. The projects must be related to the work of Fred Rogers and should be related to the student’s major and expected career plans. Students will identify an advisory team member to work with, and will jointly define the project goals and methods.
In Year Four of the program, students will work with their identified FRS advisory team mentor to conduct a culminating project. The project will result in a deliverable defined by the student and mentor and will include a brief presentation at the end of the spring semester.
