How do I know if my essay topic is acceptable?
Consult the issue areas covered by the Scoville Fellowship to determine if your essay topic is pertinent. There are many important topics, e.g., human rights, that fall outside of the purview of the Scoville Fellowship. Some of the participating organizations conduct work in areas not covered by the Scoville Fellowship, so do not assume that if one of the groups you are interested in working with covers that topic, that it is an acceptable essay for your application. The program does not approve topics so make your own decision.
