Established in 1995 by Jim Manzi ’73, students are selected on a competitive basis. Significant criteria for selection are a demonstrated commitment to community service and the potential to pursue such work after college.
Those awarded a fellowship receive a stipend of $4,200 and are assigned to a project or agency, working 40 hours per week for 10 weeks.
Recruitment for this fellowship has passed. Next year's deadline will occur in November 2013.
The internship will run for 10 weeks. No vacations, absences, delayed start dates or early departures are permitted, except where sanctioned by Colgate University, with the assent of the sponsoring organization, in exceptional circumstances.
Fellows are expected to work for a total of 40 hours per week, Monday - Friday.
In the case of internships that have a shorter workday, you are responsible for calculating the hours necessary to reach a 40-hour work week, and, with your supervisor, for arranging additional work to cover this gap. This must be arranged prior to commencing the internship and communicated to the Manzi Fellowship Coordinator. The nature of the additional work could be:
- A research project related to the work of the organization
- Support work for special projects such as fundraising, event planning
