The Tisch Summer Fellows (TSF) program offers substantive internships that allow 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. TSF fellowships are available for undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students.

For 2017, Tisch College is excited to partner with Tufts University School of Medicine to offer their students one-of-a-kind Tisch Summer Fellowships, developed by TUSM staff and faculty. The organizations below have crafted specific fellowships with TUSM students in mind.

Tisch Summer Fellowships include:

  • Stipend of $3,800
  • Orientation on campus prior to the summer
  • A substantive 8-week internship at a specific placement
  • Peer meetings for knowledge sharing and reflection
  • Opportunities to meet and network with Tufts Alumni in your city
  • A final reflection paper
  • Sharing your experience at the end of your fellowship back on campus

Fellowships will run for eight weeks at approximately 35 hours/week. The eight week timeframe will take place sometime during the ten weeks between May 30th, 2017 and August 4th, 2017. Should you be selected for an internship, the exact schedule will be determined in consultation with the site.

TUSM students are eligible to apply for up to 2 positions total. Please indicate which is your first and second choice in your application materials.

Fellowships available to Tufts School of Medicine students:

Greater Boston

Washington, D.C.

Applications for the TUSM Tisch Summer Fellows positions will be due at Noon on February 17, 2017.

The TSF program is funded in part by a generous gift from the James and Judith K. Dimon Foundation established by Judy and Jamie Dimon, A78.
