Presidential Fellowships

Harvard President Drew Faust, with the generous support of an anonymous donor, has established the Presidential Public Service Fellowship Program to provide funding to students interested in pursuing public service work during the summer. A limited number of fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis each year to a cohort of undergraduate and graduate students participating in a broad range of activities, including government and community service, non-governmental organization and non-profit work, and innovative projects that serve the common good. Ordinarily, award amounts will not exceed $5,000 for undergraduates and $8,000 for graduate students.

The application deadline for Summer 2017 is February 1, 2017. Applicants will be notified of award decisions the first week of April 2017.
