Summer Fellowships Fund

In 1992, Columbia Business School students initiated the Social Enterprise Summer Fellowship Program (initially called the CORPS Fellowship Program) to allow students to apply their business skills and explore social enterprise areas. These students work as project managers, initiative leaders, and change agents for their organizations, seizing opportunities in diversified sectors that identify new approaches, and advance sustainable solutions that create social and environmental value.

The number of MBA students who apply to be a Social Enterprise Summer Fellow has increased rapidly due to growing interest and opportunities in the field. Support from students, alumni, faculty, staff, and supporters of the Program have been key to facilitating this growth. In return, Summer Fellows help organizations across a range of projects and issues, including strategic planning, start-up business plan development, marketing and product strategies, financial analysis, operational improvements, and performance evaluation.

Donations made to the Social Enterprise Fellowship Program will directly impact students hoping to gain experience with social enterprise organizations.  Additionally, the organizations that they work with are able to access much-needed MBA talent that they could not otherwise afford to hire.
