The Lang CESJ Summer Student Fellowship is a competitive, 10-week program designed to support four Lang students as they connect theory to practice during the summer in New York City. Students apply to the program under an issue area (i.e., housing, education, public health, sustainability, etc.) of their choice. The program is comprised of three areas: (1) paid on-site fieldwork with a Lang CESJ community partner, (2) a living and learning community in summer housing, and (3) a weekly academic seminar. The on-site fieldwork acts as a full-time internship where fellows commit to working 35 hours each week and receive a $5,000 stipend. In addition, fellows are required to attend weekly academic seminars throughout the course of the program to contextualize their fieldwork experience. These seminars are an opportunity for students to explore their issue areas in an academic context through curated readings and reflection, and to build community with each other and guest speakers. Fellows are provided summer housing on campus through the Office of Student Housing at no cost. Upon completion of the fellowship, students are required to submit a reflection project to Lang CESJ staff. In the fall of 2014, students are also required to attend a symposium to present their fellowship experiences to the larger Lang community.
Applications must be submitted on or before March 1 at 5:00 p.m. EST for consideration. Applications submitted after this deadline will not be considered.
