Mindich Service Fellowships offer Harvard College students the premier opportunity to explore public service work for 10 weeks during the summer. Through the Mindich Service Fellowship Program, CPIC has developed partnerships with several leading public service organizations across the U.S. Participating fellows will receive a $4,000-$5,000 stipend (dependent on location) and at least 50% of their summer earnings contribution will be covered (if they receive financial aid from Harvard College). Fellows working in Boston, New York City, and San Francisco will be eligible to receive free, dorm-style housing over the summer. All Mindich Service Fellows will be matched with a mentor from CPIC’s alumni/ae network. Mindich Service Fellows will attend community-based events in their host city and participate in professional development discussions, facilitated by CPIC staff.
Applicants must submit a resume, cover letter, student record, and contact information for three references through Harvard’s Crimson Careers application portal in order to be eligible for Mindich Service Fellowship opportunities. Links to Crimson Careers can be found under each posting on our website.
Mindich Service Fellowships with the Center for Public Interest Careers are made possible through the support of Eric Mindich '88 and Stacey Mindich. In addition to sponsoring 75 summer fellows, the Mindich Family has also provided support to launch a program in engaged scholarship at Phillips Brooks House. This program bridges connections between academics and service.
