Tisch Active Citizenship Summer Fellowship Program

Tisch Active Citizenship Summer (ACS) is an opportunity for Tufts students to gain real-world skills, grow their networks, and explore career paths while building stronger communities on a local, national or international level. ACS fellowships are available for undergraduate, graduate and professional school students.

Each ACS program is unique – placement opportunities and application processes varies for each program. Domestic programs in Washington DC, Massachusetts, and New York feature specific internship positions while for the international program, students design their own project. Read more about the 60 students who participated in 2012-13 placements and projects.

The ACS program is funded in part by a generous gift from the James and Judith K. Dimon Foundation established by Judy and Jamie Dimon, A78. In New York, specific placements are sponsored by generous individual donors.
