Tisch Summer Fellows Program

Tisch Summer Fellows: NYC

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. In addition, there is a unique TSF: India program that allows students to spend their summer teaching at a rural school founded by a Tufts alumnus.

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.

Tisch Summer Fellows applications are due on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at NOON.

Pentagon applications are due Monday, January 14, 2019 at NOON.

The Tisch Summer Fellows program is supported by generous individual donors.
