GU Impacts Fellowship

Start Date: September 2014

Portfolio: Sustainable Student Impact

Stage: Scale

Summary + Problem Statement

GU Impacts is a 7-month fellowship program guiding students through an immersive and transformational experience. While the fellowship is centered around a 10-week independent summer project with one of our social impact partners, the Beeck Center wraps fellows’ summer experience with robust on- and off-boarding.

With intentional orientation, continuous discernment, and guidance into next-steps, this program supports Beeck Center’s larger mission of molding future social impact leaders.

What We Are

  • A 7-month program with 8 partners students can work with over the summer
  • An independent work experience over the summer, a 20-25 cohort-experience to grow together with
  • An opportunity for any continuing undergraduate students, no matter which school, class, or major

What We Are NOT

  • A choose-your-own-adventure program. Students rank their preferred partners for the summer, but should understand the mission and programming of GU Impact beyond the 10-week project
  • A guided summer experience with a GU faculty or staff member
  • An opportunity for graduating seniors or students studying abroad in Spring 2020
