Undergraduate Fellowships

The Haas Center’s Undergraduate Fellowships Program engages students in full-time, nine-week, public service experiences to integrate academic learning and field-based service. Fellowships offer students opportunities for personal growth and development, career exploration, and intellectual inquiry, while making contributions to public service organizations and communities around the world. Fellowship awards begin at $4,000 and are adjusted for students with demonstrated financial need. Additional living expenses supplements may be available for students spending the summer abroad or in high cost-of-living domestic locations.

Fellows can pursue prearranged placements or self-designed opportunities in both domestic and international settings across the Haas Center’s Pathways of Public Service. Our programs include pre-field preparatory programs and advising, cohort development, faculty engagement, and reflection opportunities during and after the fellowship experience.

Use the table below to explore our diverse array of opportunities to serve, and feel free to contact Valerie Chow or Hilary Douglas at the Haas Center with any questions.

In addition to the fellowships listed in the table below, please also see this list of immersive and intensive service opportunities offered by our Cardinal Quarter campus partners.
