The Richmond Guarantee

What if ... ?

What if you had a guaranteed fellowship to spend a summer developing leadership programs in London or interning with a clean water initiative? What if you had funding to research women's healthcare trends, study malaria transmission in the Amazon, or train with professional dancers?

At Richmond, you will.
