Welcome to the main page of the Gaudino Fund! Uncover the history of the fund, stay up-to-date with our newsletters, and learn more about fellowship opportunities for students as well as the work of our current Gaudino scholar.

The goal of the Gaudino Fund is to perpetuate Robert Gaudino’s emphasis on reflection, confronting our own biases through immersive engagement with otherness and, through that experience, learning to know ourselves more deeply and differently.
