Summer Fellows

Mission: 

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.
