Fellowships

The Community Service Fellowship Program offers both domestic and international opportunities. Through these programs, students can apply for summer employment or internships in agencies or other organizations that address issues in design and planning that serve the public interests of communities. These engagements are intended to increase and enhance the school’s contact with, and relationship to, outside communities and to offer students an opportunity to explore new uses and applications for the skills they need.

Domestic Community Service Fellowship Program

The main mission of the Domestic Community Service Fellowship Program (CSFP) is to expose students to new challenges and methods of working, and to encourage them to explore connections between the academic interests they pursue at the GSD and the practitioner’s vocation to understand and address existing challenges faced by communities both locally (in the Boston area) and nationally throughout the U.S.  The program also provides summer funding to support students as they gain relevant work experience. There are six different domestic fellowships available, most offering support to multiple students each year. Click on each fellowship to learn more
