How to Apply

There are several domestic Community Service Fellowship funding sources for 10 week summer internships.  Click the “Apply Now” button below to review and complete the common application form for summer internship funding. Please complete the application once.

Our goal is to fund as many students as possible.

Current students can find previous Community Service Fellowship sponsors by logging onto CREATE (the GSD’s Career Management System). We cannot guarantee funding to all of the students who apply.  This is a competitive program. Students are encouraged to develop an alternative plan in case they are not selected to receive funding.


* The application deadline for domestic CSFP applications is Friday, March 9th.

* The link below will take you to CARAT, the page which lists many funding opportunities for  Harvard students.

* Once you are on the CARAT page, do a keyword search for Graduate School of Design Domestic Community Service Fellowship



All Master’s level students at the GSD with appropriate work experience, who will be returning to the GSD in the fall following the Fellowship are eligible to apply for funding.

Past awards have ranged from up to $2,000 (for international travel funding) to $7,000 (for 10 week Community Service Fellowships).

Graduating students are not eligible to apply for Community Service Fellowship funding.
