Summer Community Service Fellowship

Support undergraduates interested in public and community service careers

The Harvard Club of Seattle's Summer Community Service Fellowship supports Harvard undergraduates pursuing public service work at local non-profit organizations. Each fellowship carries a stipend of $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.
