Priscilla Chan Summer Service Stipend

With many thanks to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, our office is excited to share the creation of the Priscilla Chan Summer Service Stipend program!

This program provides funding for students who receive need-based aid for college and have secured an unpaid summer internship or fellowship in public service! Eligible students will receive a $5,000 base stipend and are eligible for additional funding for living expenses (up to $1,000)! 

Eligibility: If you are currently on leave but plan to re-enroll in Fall 2022, you may participate in our programming.  If you plan to apply to one of our summer programs, reach out to your Resident Dean as soon as possible to request to be approved to return from leave. You must be approved to return from leave by the Ad Board before accepting our offer to participate. Students graduating in May 2022 are also eligible to apply.
