Summer Community Service Fellowship
Support undergraduates interested in public and community service careers
The Harvard Club of Seattle's Summer Community Service Fellowship program provides paid summer fellowships to students working at non-profit organizations. Undergraduates are chosen by Harvard Clubs and Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) across the U.S. and Canada to pursue public service projects in the host Clubs' communities.
Each fellowship carries a stipend of approximately $3,000-$4,000, and fellows are expected to devote at least eight weeks of full-time involvement to their public service project. Housing and living arrangements are the responsibility of the recipient, as are any costs incurred greater than the stipend amount.
