Summer Fellows 2020!

We had a fantastic time hosting the Fellows this year! It is always an honor to watch them grow, gain experience, and make an impact in just 10 short weeks.

Are you a nonprofit organization? Do you have a need for added capacity for an important project that could be accomplished with one of Columbus’s best and brightest young people? If so, consider applying to host one of The Columbus Foundations Summer Fellows in 2020. Details below.

The Columbus Foundation is now accepting applications from nonprofit organizations for the 2020 Summer Fellowship Program, which links college students to meaningful experiences with area nonprofits.

Nonprofit organizations have the opportunity to host a summer fellow for a 10-week period from June 1, 2020 to August 7, 2020. Nonprofits must have a specific program to assign to the Fellow with specific objectives that will be completed during the 10-week period.

Fellows will:

  • Be a college junior, senior, May 2020 graduate, or a graduate student in the fall of 2020; and
  • Be a graduate of a Franklin County high school attending any four-year college or university; or
  • Be a junior, senior, May 2020 graduate, or graduate student attending a Franklin County college or university.

Organizations that hosted a Fellow in 2019, governmental agencies, colleges, universities, or other funding organizations are not eligible to apply. [View the application and additional eligibility information.]

All applications from nonprofits must be submitted electronically by the close of business on Friday, September 13, 2019. We encourage you to go to the website and use of FAQs for further information on the Summer Fellowship Program. Organizations selected will receive a grant to cover a stipend for the Fellow.
