MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative

Sloan Social Impact Fund

Ready to make an impact this summer?

See how the Sloan Social Impact Fund can empower you to make a difference.

Managed by the Sustainability Initiative, the Sloan Social Impact Fund (SSIF) provides financial support to MIT students in students in two-year programs who accept a summer internship in social impact (non-profit, government, and social enterprise). Selected students can receive up to $5,000.

The fund is supported by raising money from MIT Sloan’s MBA community, where fellow MBA students typically donate one day’s salary from their internship to support their peers as they strive to fulfill MIT Sloan’s mission to develop principled, innovative leaders.
