Tisch Summer Fellows Program
The Tisch Summer Fellows (TSF) program offers substantive internships that allow Tufts students to gain real-world skills, grow their networks, and explore career paths while building stronger communities on a local, national, or international level. TSF fellowships are available for undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students.
Each TSF program is unique—placement opportunities vary for each program. Domestic programs in New York, Greater Boston, and Washington, D.C. feature specific internship positions, while the international component of the TSF program funds independent student projects abroad.
We have also partnered with the Tufts University School of Medicine, Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, and Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy to create special summer fellowships exclusive to students from each school that are especially designed to complement their education and training.
Explore all 2020 fellowships at the link below. Applications are due January 27. Students may apply to up to three individual fellowships; additional placements will be added over winter break. Be sure to sign up for our Tisch College email list to be notified of information session dates.
The Tisch Summer Fellows program is supported by generous individual donors.
