The George Van Amson Fellowship, funded by Community Impact, is a great opportunity to develop your professional skills while supporting a local nonprofit or service learning project!
Three GVA Fellowship opportunities are available:
- The GVA Public Interest Fellow works at a local NYC nonprofit organization in a project- or research-based internship capacity
- The GVA Community Impact Brinkley Fellow will work at Community Impact on a self-initiated project or research that fulfills a specific organizational need;
- The GVA Faculty Service Learning Fellow will assist a faculty member in the development and research of a service-learning project to be offered as part of a fall 2017 course.
Applicants will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- Impact of the organization on the community;
- Impact of the fellowship project within the organization
- Impact of the project on the Fellow;
- Project’s alignment with Community Impact’s mission to advance the public good and instill the importance of life-long service; and
