The Barton Institute for Philanthropy and Social Enterprise at the University of Denver is pleased to announce the selection of the 2018-19 QF Social Enterprise Fellows.

Twelve Fellows were selected from a competitive pool and represent eight different academic programs.

A list of the Fellows is below and you can read more here.

The QF Social Enterprise Fellowship has two goals: to give DU graduate students the opportunity to work across disciplines and with community-based social enterprises, and to expand the impact of social enterprises in Colorado’s communities.

The Fellowship program is sponsored by Quarterly Forum (QF) as part of their effort to grow leaders in the public, private, and social sectors.

In the first year of the program, Fellows took part in six different projects at five organizations. One pair of Fellows worked with Access Art Gallery on Santa Fe, which represents and employs disabled artists. The Fellows helped Access to improve their corporate art sales program. Anna Bernhardt, a second year law student, conducted a legal audit and solidified operational structures, while Jayne Butler, who received her Masters of Fine Arts from DU on June 8th, created a “Look Book” to boost corporate sales.

Fellows worked with Women’s Bean Project to improve client experience, and created business plans for social enterprises at Emily Griffith Technical College and Groundwork Denver. Still others worked with The Denver Foundation to outline the growth model for social enterprises, and to examine the breadth and strength of the social enterprise community in Metro Denver.
