SSA Social Innovation Summer FellowshipThe School of Social Service Administration (SSA) invites current first year and EEP master’s students to apply for the SSA Social Innovation Summer Fellowship (SSIF), a unique summer fellowship opportunity to support interest in innovative nonprofit practice. The SSIF was launched in 2012 to support summer internships for masters-level students seeking experience with innovative nonprofit organizations or for-profit social enterprises that serve at-risk or low-income populations. The fellowship program provides students with real-world experience in organizations operating in the social impact sector to address issues of poverty, economic opportunity, job training and education, or community development. One summer fellowship of $2,500 will be awarded for an internship commitment of at least 150 hours between June 1, 2015 and August 31, 2015.
