The Technology For Impact Fellowship provides students and recent graduates with an opportunity to take ownership for a technology initiative to directly impact the growth of a highly successful non-profit. Between four and six fellows will be selected for two projects requiring varying skill sets and experience for the Summer of 2014. Fellows will have access to industry executives and seasoned experts in the project's field for mentoring and networking. Fellows may have a full-time position during the fellowship, and work on the project in the evenings and/or on weekends if they choose.
PURPOSE: The purpose of this fellowship is to encourage students and recent graduates who want to explore and prepare for a career in technology to consider how the interests of technology and social impact relate. The ultimate goal is to inspire future innovation for social good throughout their career. TFI Fellows can include projects in their professional repertoire as well as the distinction of the fellowship title. This fellowship is currently a volunteer position and the projects are selected based on a benefit that an organization wouldn’t normally be able to accomplish.
ELIGIBILITY: Fellows must be a current student, applying to grad school in the next 2 years, or be a recent graduate within two years of graduation (A member of the graduating class of 2012, 2013 or 2014). Applicants are encouraged from any field of study and from a wide variety of technology experiences. We understand that the most ambitious students seek out every opportunity they can to boost their experience, therefore we structure the projects and planning to work around a fulltime work schedule.
PROJECT: SALESFORCE OPTIMIZATION
FSD's staff is severely limited by the manual processes when accepting applications, coordinating with field teams and collecting information. The focus of this project is to identify bottle necks in the process and create a fully automated system in Salesforce for the staff in San Francisco and a place for field teams to interact with the system with limited access to internet and little technology experience.
The fellowship team will design and develop the web layout for applicant profiles after they submit an application. This will be in the form of user profiles where applicants can change application information, access information pertinent to their program and report back on the progress if accepted. The fellowship team will also be responsible for creating a very simple web form that can be understood by field teams with limited access to technology to automate the process of uploading information on sustainability projects into Salesforce.
PROJECT: INTERACTIVE MAP
Village Enterprise has focused their efforts on Kenya and Uganda to impact people living in under the extreme poverty line ($1.25/day). The geographic significance is hard to picture for donors, volunteers and partners 8,000 miles away here in the United States. The solution is to integrate an interactive map of Kenya and Uganda onto Village Enterprise's website, so that visitors can explore the work they do and familiarize themselves with the local business mentor on each dot displayed on the map.
Village Enterprise currently uses a mobile application that integrates with the cloud to store collected information on each business and program they support. Currently they have a WordPress website. The data first needs to be taken off of their internal database, where it can be pulled out in CSV files, and added to a WordPress database. The fellowship team will create a new database in WordPress that can link directly to the mobile application in the field used to collect information. The fellowship team will also be responsible for the integration of the map onto the website, and creating the process of keeping the map updated by Village Enterprise staff and field teams.
Interested students with experience in any of the following may apply here:
- Web Development
- Salesforce Development
- Web Design
- Database Development
- Data Analysis
- Business Process Analysis

The Watersheds Division at the Santa Clara Valley Water District is looking for a part-time intern to assist and play a key role in implementing a web-based flood warning system throughout Silicon Valley. Please forward your Resume plus any relevant info to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 31, 2014.
Pay: $18.17/hr - $25.68/hr
Hours: Approximately 20 hours a week, Monday thru Friday during normal business hours for six months to a year.
- Background: Computer Science, GIS, Web, Geography, Civil Engineering
- Optional Database Experience: MySQL, PostgreSQL
The Santa Clara Valley Water District is responsible for 10 dams and reservoirs, as well as 275 miles of rivers and streams for the county’s 1.8 million residents. As a result of intense urbanization and climate change effects, some of the streams are prone to severe flooding during large rainfall events, causing property damage and posing a hazard to human life.
The goal of the flood warning project is to use modern weather forecasting, in conjunction with multiple telemetry stations, plus engineering computer models and simulations, to predict flooding. Residents can sign up to be notified via e-mail or text, and emergency responders can better plan for natural disasters.
An integral part of the project is to display all this information in a coherent and meaningful way on a web-based application that can accessed by the public. The District is seeking an intern who is self motivated to learn the existing data systems and connect it to a web application. In addition, the intern would work to improve functionality and overall aesthetics for the web application, while coordinating between different internal and external parties. He/she would work closely with District staff to implement the project.
The ideal candidate would understand database systems and be able to use their web programming skills to complete the task. A GIS and water resources engineering is preferred, but not required. This is a perfect opportunity to gain valuable work experience, as well as to work on a trail-blazing project within the water resources field that can directly affect people in a positive way.

Oracle Labs is the research arm of Oracle. Our researchers look for novel approaches and methodologies, often taking on projects with high risk or uncertainty or that are difficult to tackle within a product-development organization. The Oracle Labs Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization group performs research and consulting in applied mathematics. We have an opportunity for a graduate student intern this summer. It might be of special interest to a graduate student doing research in integer programming.
Position Description and Requirements: This opportunity relates to an algorithm that we have created to do specialized types of integer non-linear programming. We use a combination of greedy techniques to find a solution quickly and randomization to try to escape from local optimums. An example use of this algorithm is price optimization for products within Oracle’s retail business unit. The summer intern position is to help improve the algorithm by refactoring the code and augmenting the types of objective functions and constraints that can be solved. The intern will also be expected to test the algorithm on classic integer programming problems, identify optimal parameter settings, and consider extensions of the algorithm to other mathematical programming problems. The applicant must be a strong Java programmer and have familiarity with integer programming techniques. The applicant must be a graduate student in MS&E, ICME, or a related field; a PhD student is preferred.
Oracle Labs is located in Belmont, CA, at Oracle headquarters. If interested in this opportunity, reply to email@example.com
