Summer Fellowship

The Othering & Belonging Institute Summer Fellowship is a three-month-long, part-time, 20-hour per week paid internship—compensation is awarded based on educational degree. The fellowship runs from mid-May to mid-August, and takes place at the Othering & Belonging Institute office on the UC Berkeley campus, where all summer fellows are expected to work from. Additionally, fellows will be oriented to Othering & Belonging Institute's research methods and frameworks and will receive mentorship in research and the development of writing policy memos and reports. Fellows will be given opportunities to explore pressing community, national, and global social justice issues through workshops, local events and direct engagements with advocates working in the field. All traditional, non-traditional, and international students who are studying in the US (with valid work permits) from community colleges through doctoral degree programs are welcome to apply. All accepted applicants must arrange and cover the expenses of their travel and housing accommodations.
