Sponsor the Summer Community Service Fellowship
The Summer Community Service Fellowship
Committee Chair: Loreen Collins; AB '82
What is the Summer Community Service Fellowship?
This year the Harvard Club of San Diego is establishing a Summer Community Service Fellowship (SCSF) in conjunction with Harvard’s Center for Public Interest Careers (CPIC). Harvard truly goes local with this program. Through SCSF, we have the opportunity to sponsor undergraduate students in exploring summer internships that support the San Diego community and non-profit organizations. In cities where the program has been implemented, it has provided great connections between alumni and students, in addition to broadening experiences for students to consider as career interests.
How does it work?
The program is designed for current Harvard undergraduate students looking to experience working for a not-for-profit organization for the summer. Current Harvard students can apply for the SCSF through an application submitted to CPIC. The SCSF will provide summer income to the Harvard student while interning at a San Diego not-for-profit for the summer.
The Harvard Club of San Diego will recommend several local not-for-profits to the student intern or the intern can choose an organization of their own. The intern is expected to devote approximately 10-12 weeks of full-time involvement to the not-for-profit organization. At the end of the project, the student will submit a final report for review by the Harvard Club if San Diego and HAA.
How can you get involved?
