Established by Community Impact, the Van Amson Fellowship awards six Barnard, Columbia, SEAS, and GS undergraduate students $3000 and sponsored summer housing to support an unpaid nonprofit or service internship. The internship must take place in New York City, be at least eight weeks in duration, and 30 hours/week.
There are three types of internships you can apply for: 1) working at an external organization, 2) working at Community Impact, or 3) working with a faculty member in Columbia’s American Studies program. Applicants are required to secure an unpaid non-profit internship, if working at an external organization, by the application deadline.
The application is available through Community Impact’s website. Applications are due by Monday, March 21, 2011.
