Field School Fellows
As an Upstate Institute Field School Fellow, students are responsible for building relationships in the local and regional community. Through this experience, students complete independent work on innovative projects that provide a community benefit and in so doing develop a deeper understanding of the issues facing the Upstate region and a strong appreciation for what the region has to offer.

Fellows work approximately 35 hours a week for 8–10 weeks over the summer with a partner organization. Students provide a variety of services to the organization, which may include:
- conducting research projects;
- developing training programs;
- working with clients;
- participating in program development;
- and, writing or researching grants.
