Alumni Opportunities

Become a Tisch Summer Fellows Alumni Mentor

You are invited to join the Tisch Summer Fellows program as an alumni mentor for the 2023 program period.

Through this program, students enhance career development skills while building civic learning through internship positions with non-profit, government, and social impact organizations. In addition to the internship, students engage in reflection and networking opportunities, including alumni mentoring.

Alumni mentors volunteers from across decades and academic programs who have a commitment to civic engagement and the public interest as demonstrated through personal or professional pursuits. Mentors can be alumni from any Tufts school as fellows also come from across the university, including graduate and professional schools.

The time commitment varies but is typically no more than 3-4 hours over the program period (June 5-August 11, 2023), depending on how many times the mentor and student decide to connect. We also invite mentors to attend certain programming, either in person or virtually. Attendance at programming is optional.

Pairings will be based on the information you provide and the needs of our cohort of fellows. We cannot guarantee each person will be paired with a student. Complete this interest form by June 5 to be considered.
