CS + Social Good Summer Fellowships 2024 - Recidiviz Product Management Internship

Technology & Engineering

The Haas Center and CS+Social Good (a student-led organization) have partnered to launch the CS+Social Good Summer Fellowship program, which includes self-designed and pre-arranged fellowship placements.

Through the CS+Social Good Summer Fellowship, students will receive funding and support to work with an organization using technology to address social issues. Selected fellows will gain unique industry experience at a public interest technology organization under the mentorship of an industry expert or faculty member. 

Each CS+Social Good Fellow receives a base stipend of $6,500 to cover most of the essential costs associated with an unpaid service experience. Financial aid and supplemental funding is available to students who qualify.

Funding for this initiative has been generously provided by the John and Andrea Hennessy Cardinal Quarter Fund and Haas Center donors as part of the Cardinal Quarter program.

Apply to work with our pre-arranged fellowship opportunity with Recidiviz!

This is the Spring Quarter round for this year's CS+SG Fellowships Application. Students can apply to the fellowship position available at Recidiviz, an organization that builds tech to reduce the number of people in prison and on supervision, increases re-entry success, and makes communities safer.

Location: Fellows can choose to work remotely, on-site, or a hybrid. We have offices in Oakland, California, and in New York City.

Role Description:

Recidiviz has more demand than ever to expand our team’s work. We are moving into new parts of the country and new justice systems, and growing our product and analytical offerings. We’re looking for our next Product Management Intern to bring our work to as much of the country as possible. Recidiviz product managers combine technology, strategy, communication, and coordination to develop tools that can safely and equitably reduce prison populations.

The ideal candidate would have an interest in developing, shipping, and supporting technical products. They would be comfortable going deep in technical discussions, and have either a technical background or significant experience working closely with software engineers. They would be comfortable balancing urgency and empathy in their work with cross-functional team members, and would truly enjoy working complex problems into smaller, more manageable components. They would also be a strong written and verbal communicator, and be comfortable managing internal and external stakeholders. Lastly, the ideal candidate would be able to develop a strong vision for their product, while also practicing humility and a willingness to learn from both the criminal justice ecosystem and others' lived experiences.

Interns at Recidiviz function like every other member of the team: contributing to mission critical projects alongside your teammates. No toy projects! This means your internship could take you in many different directions, but the work will be important no matter what. 


  • Define, manage, and evolve the product requirements and go-to-market strategy
  • Coordinate internal functions (including engineering, design, data analysis, partnerships, and more) to ensure consistent, high-impact product delivery
  • Develop deep familiarity with the criminal justice system and its data
  • Launch a new product or feature, evaluate them for ongoing impact (positive or negative), and iterate 



For complete eligibility requirements, please review our program policies in its entirety.

Currently, enrolled first-years, sophomores, juniors, and seniors (who will return to campus next fall) at Stanford from all academic disciplines are encouraged to apply, and applicants may vary in academic interests, public service involvement, and experience. Priority will be given to students who have completed fewer than two previous Cardinal Quarter opportunities. Students who have begun their coterm programs are not eligible to apply. Applicants will be asked to provide a name and contact of one reference. References from fellow undergraduates are not permissible; however, we allow references from faculty, graduate teaching assistants, co-workers, and any person who knows you well and can provide new insights about you.


Selected CS+Social Good Fellows are expected to begin service no later than July 8, 2024. All fellows are required to work full time with their community partners at least 35 hours/week for nine consecutive weeks at their placements. Fellows are expected to work on-site at their host organizations when possible (University policies and health conditions permitting). Fellows must have a designated full-time professional staff member on-site as their supervisor/mentor. Other requirements are listed below:

Spring Quarter

  • Complete the online program orientation.
  • Attend the Engaging in Ethical and Effective Service workshop.
  • Attend workshop and events organized for the CS+Social Good Spring Fellows.
  • Students participating in an international service project must complete international service preparation requirements.


  • Communicate regularly with mentors.
  • Submit a brief preliminary report.
  • Submit a final report, complete a program evaluation, and correspond with fellowship donor(s) as requested by fellowships program staff.

Autumn Quarter

  • Participate in outreach activities to share your experiences and help publicize the program.


Selection Process:

For those who seek assistance, advising is offered to help students develop their applications.

This fellowship is intended for individuals whose application, references, and interview demonstrate

  • an integration of the fellowship experience with applicant’s academic, personal and/or career goals
  • prior demonstrated interest or involvement in the subject area, including related coursework
  • a compelling match between applicant’s skills and interests and an organization’s work and needs
  • strong potential for the fellowship experience to enlarge a candidate’s understanding of an identified community issue or challenge

First, complete applications are screened, and then finalists are interviewed. Finally, fellows are selected by a committee with the intention to award fellowships by early May. Applicants should respond promptly (within 48 hours) via email to a fellowship offer, or the offer will be rescinded. Once an applicant accepts a fellowship offer, the student should promptly notify all other Stanford and non-Stanford programs to which they have applied that they have accepted another offer and to withdraw their candidacy.
