Community Service Fellowship Program
The Community Service Fellowship Program (CSFP) provides opportunities for GSD students to apply the skills they have developed in their academic programs through direct involvement with projects that address public needs and community concerns at the local, national or international level.
All GSD students with appropriate work experience, who will be returning to the GSD in the fall following the Fellowship, are eligible to apply. There are two types of fellowships.
Summer Internship CSFP Fellowships
Students in the Summer Internship CSFP Program work with community organizations, federal and state agencies, and non-profit institutions, which benefit from student assistance with design, research and/or planning projects that they would not ordinarily be able to afford.
Students who are awarded a Summer Internship Fellowship earn $7,000 for 10 week internships in the U.S.
International Travel CSFP Fellowships
Students who are awarded an International Travel Grant will be working as volunteers in nonprofits or governments outside of the U.S. If selected the student is awarded full or partial cost of airfare to their international destination.
All applications are carefully reviewed by Committee. The fellowships are competitive and we cannot guarantee funding to every student who applies for a community service fellowship.
