To ensure that all students may participate, Summer Serve pays the expected summer earnings for a student on financial aid. Stipends are from $2000-$3500. Funding is generated primarily from the classes of 1994-2001. Other alumni and friends of the college are encouraged to express their support. Organizations are asked to but not required to contribute funds to the students stipend.
Email completed application and supporting materials to email@example.com (subject line should be: Summer Serve Application).
ALL MATERIALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE DEADLINE
While preparing your application, it is helpful to do as much research as possible on organizations that may be of interest to you. In the past, applicants with specific organizations in mind have been more prepared and successful during the interview process. While there is no need to have an internship confirmed, it is extremely helpful to know of a couple possibilities and to have given serious thought to where you would like to intern. Career Development and Eighth Dimension are happy to help you with this process before you apply.
Summer Serve provides funding and guidance for rising juniors and seniors to embark on meaningful, paid summer internships in non-profits and social service agencies throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. The program is designed to inspire and enable Haverford students to work in the public and nonprofit sectors while building ties between the college and the greater community. A Summer Serve intern gains first-hand skills necessary for working in public service, while making a significant contribution to an organization. Following the summer internship, it is expected that students will play an active role in continuing the goals of Summer Serve. All students are encouraged to apply, with preference given to students on financial aid.
Summer Serve is made possible through the work of alumni/ae volunteers across the country and numerous Haverford offices, led by Eighth Dimension, Office of Major Gifts and Projects, and Career Development.
Summer Serve was founded in 1993 by a group of young alumni/ae who work or volunteer in the nonprofit sector. In the spirit of Haverford College's Eighth Dimension program, Summer Serve values an education that links academic study with practical experience and service-based learning. Summer Serve believes that young people, when given the opportunity can develop into leaders who will tackle our society's most pressing needs. We hope you will join us in the 18th year of a long and fruitful program.
Past Summer Serve interns have worked with a diverse group of organizations and communities including:
