Help Make a Social Impact

The Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility invites interested Swarthmore alumni to apply for the Lang Social Impact Fellowship (LSIF), a program supporting engagement in systems-change activities that close the gaps between social challenges and solutions. Key features of the LSIF include mentoring, training, and funding.

For the first three years after its 2016 launch, the LSIF was designed as a postbaccalaureate program to help recent alumni (within 1–3 years of graduation) work on scaling their direct service projects. This year, the Lang Center is opening the fellowship to all alumni, encouraging applicants to propose social-impact projects and activities that advance systems change.

The alumni fellows will be expected to lend their experience and expertise in mentoring Lang Scholars, a cohort of current Swarthmore students working to design and implement social-impact projects in the U.S. and abroad, as well as other Swarthmore social innovators. The deadline to apply is March 31.
