The Civic Fellowship Program provides funding for continuing, degree-seeking undergraduate students completing otherwise unpaid, academically grounded summer internships in the nonprofit or government sectors in Richmond or elsewhere.

A Civic Fellow completes between 320-400 hours at one internship site while simultaneously undertaking complementary academic work under the guidance of a faculty or qualified staff mentor. Civic Fellows have secured internships locally, nationally, and internationally in the arts, education, the environment, human rights, community development, political advocacy, public health, criminal justice, international diplomacy, and other areas. The fellowship provides up to $5,000 ($12.50 per hour) for the student and $1,000 for the student’s academic mentor on the project.
