Community Leadership: Summer Internships in DC

Our Washington, DC based summer institute focused on Community Leadership and Service is now accepting applications for the February 7, 2018 Priority Deadline.  We are very happy to announce that through our Leadership Scholars Program, we have at least 25 full scholarships to aid students in attending our summer 2018 programs in Washington, DC. Details may be found by clicking here.

The Institute on Philanthropy and Voluntary Service (IPVS) is an eight week summer academic internship program sponsored by The Fund for American Studies in partnership with George Mason University. The program offers undergraduate students a first-hand look at national nonprofits and service through:

  • An internship placement at an international, national or local nonprofit organization
  • Courses for credit in behavioral economics for nonprofits & ethics and leadership
  • Interactive community leadership projects & social entrepreneurship workshops
  • Exclusive lectures, briefings, behind the scene tours & professional development seminars
  • Campus housing in the heart of Washington, DC

Our goal is to help students learn more about community organizations and develop the leadership skills to solve today’s most pressing issues. As you know, today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. Building on what you have taught them in the classroom, we are committed to providing an educational experience that will prepare your students for meaningful careers in the public, business or nonprofit sector.

Students should apply by February 7 for priority admissions and scholarship consideration.
