Funding Sources for Summer Experiences

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 levels. 

The Paul M. Heffernan International Travel Award is intended to fund GSD students to travel internationally to extend the academic experience.
