Through the Cardinal Careers Community Impact Fellowship, graduating seniors and co-terms work in full-time, paid positions in nonprofit organizations and government agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area or elsewhere in the US. Positions are typically 10- to 12-months in length -- with the exception of two 2-years roles. Fellows are paid a stipend plus health insurance coverage as needed.

The 2024-25 Community Impact Fellowship host organizations submit job description for students to review, and applicants are encouraged to select several organizations to maximize their chance for securing a Community Impact position. Partner organizations review finalist applications, arrange interviews, and make final hiring decisions. Please note that Haas Center staff does not necessarily have direct experience with, nor do we professionally endorse, partner organizations.

The Cardinal Careers Community Impact Fellowship program aims to:

  • Recruit talented students to work in public service
  • Engage alumni working in and committed to public service
  • Assist public interest organizations in finding qualified staff

Please note that we require a letter of recommendation for this fellowship. This letter should be written by someone who is able to attest to your fitness for a professional work environment, your ability to think creatively, and your capacity for leadership.
