The LSB Community Fellows Application Process is NOW OPEN!

  • Application is due April 11, 2023 @ 9AM PST

  • Open to rising junior and senior business majors. 

The LSB Community Fellowship Program places SCU business students in paid internships in local non-profit organizations, providing opportunities to use business skills in an organization that serves low-income communities or individuals. It is a way to contribute to the community while developing your skills and building your base of experience in organizations. The BUSN 183 seminar fulfills the ELSJ requirement. 

Details for the 2023-2024 Application Process:
LSB Community Fellows commit 8-10 hours/week to the fellowship (schedule determined in collaboration with organizational supervisor), beginning in Fall quarter and continuing for Winter and Spring quarters, except during finals weeks and school breaks. Fellows are paid at the rate of $17.00 per hour; funds are provided by the Leavey School of Business. Please click here to read about the experience of past Fellows.

Fellows also enroll in a 1-unit seminar (BUSN 183A, B and C) during each quarter. The seminar, co-facilitated by Economics Professor Bill Sundstrom and Professor of Practice Jackie Schmidt-Posner, provides an opportunity for reflection on experience, sharing of knowledge with other Fellows, professional development, and conceptual background on the economic context of Silicon Valley. Fellows may participate in additional opportunities, such as workshops and retreats. 

NOTE: Fellows must be enrolled as students in good University standing in fall, winter and spring quarters to qualify. In the event of remote work requirements, certain state work authorization must be met. Students are responsible for providing their own transportation to the placement site when onsite work resumes.
