Bonner Foundation Summer Opportunities Still Available!

The Bonner Foundation Summer Fellowship Program is an 8-10 week summer opportunity where talented undergraduate students are placed to work with organizations in high level internships. This program is unique in that it provides opportunity for Bonner students to be placed in a cohort based model in the same city where they’re connecting to each other to through weekly interactive enrichment activities, connecting their sites by finding unique collaborative efforts, and connecting with Bonner alums in their local areas who serve as mentors.

This summer the fellowship has expanded to 4 new cities along with placing students with partners in Washington DC, New York City and Princeton. Expansion cities include Philadelphia, Albany, Memphis, and Maryville.
