The Fellowships program supports MIT students working on capacity-building service projects. Students work with community-focused organizations, including non-profits and social enterprises. What can you do? Follow your passion and benefit a community in need! You can intern with a community-focused organization, create or continue your own project, or find project ideas through our website.

We welcome a wide range of service projects and support work in the U.S. and abroad. Past projects have included:

  • Collaborating with a mobile health clinic in Massachusetts to provide free medical care, while developing medical education tools and online health resources to targeted populations.
  • Working with an HIV clinic in Togo to calculate patients’ HIV mortality, while improving the clinic’s programming based the analyzed data.
  • Developing a low-cost ambulance for rural communities in Tanzania.
  • Working with the World Health Organization in Switzerland to identify gaps in their health assessment methodologies, while creating recommendations for new health innovation assessments.
