For Yale College students interested in a nonprofit summer internship, here are some fellowships to consider:
- Yale Alumni Community Service Fellowship (YACSF) – these are funded internship positions that students can apply for. They are not a separate funding source where students propose an internship. The YACSF positions are funded through various Yale clubs throughout the United States and are offered in the location of the club. The Yale Club of that particular city selects a nonprofit that they want to fund an internship for and Yale students can apply! Positions are in Yale Career Link. Simply do a keyword search under Jobs for “YACSF” to see current openings. These openings will continue to be offered throughout the spring at various times, so continue to check back.
