Summer Fellowship Program

About The Program

The Summer Fellowship Program at Columbia Business School encourages and enables MBA students to contribute management expertise to growing startup organizations.

Program Criteria

The Summer Fellowship Program supports internships that have a high probability of success for the employer and the student.  Employers are expected to invest time and resources into structuring and managing the activities of the summer fellow.

Summer fellowships must meet the following criteria:

  • The Internship description should be well-scoped, have clearly-defined expectations and deliverables, and identify the supervisor who the student will be reporting to;
  • Deliverables should be challenging yet realistic and have a meaningful impact on the host organization;
  • Student has mid- and end-of-summer reviews with the supervisor; and
  • The employing organization provides a sufficient commitment by funding the internship to the maximum of its ability. (Employers are asked to contribute a minimum of $600 per week. Exceptions and salary expectations are described below.)

At the end of the summer, each employer will be asked to provide feedback about the Entrepreneurship Summer Fellowship Program and the student’s impact on the organization via a short online survey. 

Apply

To apply students must complete and submit all materials indicated in the Fellowship Application form below. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through Tuesday, May 20, 2014 or until funds are no longer available. Applications submitted early will be reviewed first. Students applying for mini-internships may submit applications on a rolling basis until July 1st, assuming funds are still available.
