The Community Service Fellowship's Summer Internship is a competitive, 10-week paid summer program. Each year, six Harvard GSD students are selected to work in community and nonprofit organizations, federal and state agencies. The student work must be design or planning oriented. Preference is given to projects that are based in the greater Boston area.

The current application cycle is now closed. The 2014 application deadline was March 14th. Check back in January 2015, when the 2015 application will be available.

Fellows are awarded a stipend of up to $7000.  Students submit proposals for a community service project. A Faculty Committee selects Fellows and makes awards to fund summer employment.


Recent sponsoring organizations include:

A Better City, Boston, MA

Cambridge Community Development Dept., Cambridge, MA
