The Eichenthal Fellows program provides financial support ($4,000 per fellow) for undergraduate students to participate in summer internships at nonprofit organizations focused on public interest and policy issues. Each year, two fellowships -- one in Chattanooga, TN and one in Brooklyn, NY -- will be awarded to motivated undergraduate students that have demonstrated an interest in nonprofit, public interest, or public policy work. Fellowships last 10 weeks throughout the summer and provide participating students with professional, project-focused experience in effective organization working to address a range of community issues.  

Applicants must meet the following criteria: 

  • Rising junior or senior in an undergraduate program
  • Major in policy/public interest related field 
  • Recommendations from two professors
