Since 1968, the Dwight Hall Summer Fellows has offered the unique opportunity for students to dedicate themselves to creating social change. Designed for community-engaged students who need the time and resources to enact a socially good idea, students are employed full-time, usually eight weeks.
In addition to funding, Summer Fellows also engage in a series of community-building and boundary expanding activities with their peers. Weekly meetings revolve around food, conversation, trainings, reflection, speakers, and collective learning.
Preference is given to students working in New Haven, though exceptions can be made for extraordinary domestic cases.
