Ready to make an impact this summer?

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

The MIT Sloan Social Impact Fund fellowships provide funding to a limited number of students taking on important societal challenges during their summer internship period. Students apply in April of their first year, and awards are announced in May. Funding is provided by the Dean’s Office and contributions from classmates. These internships are self-sourced.
