Goldman Fellows Program
​The 2013 Goldman Fellows.

Providing $3500 summer stipends for community-based internships in the St. Louis region.


The Goldman Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for undergraduates to spend a summer in St. Louis with other WU students who care about the St. Louis community.  The program supports undergraduates who secure unpaid summer internships at nonprofit, community, or governmental organizations in the St. Louis region. 
The program aims to:
• Provide students with a distinctive, well-structured cohort experience that provides public service career experience and a more intimate knowledge of St. Louis
• Increase capacity for community-based organizations by providing talented interns
Program components include the stipend (THIS STIPEND IS SUBJECT TO INCOME TAX SO FINAL AMOUNT WILL BE LESS THAN $3500), a day-long retreat, and regular meetings to explore St. Louis and discuss learning from internships.
Please secure your internship prior to applying.  You may consult our office for internship ideas.  The DEADLINE for the Goldman Fellows Application and Organizational Agreement is April 2nd, 2014 by 5pm.
