Idol Family Summer Fellowship

About the Program

Originally launched in 2008 as the Georgetown Summer Fellows Program, this fellowship continues to serve undergraduate students with high-financial need interested in enhancing their Georgetown experience through a full-time internship in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Fellows receive housing, a stipend to cover summer expenses, and public transportation allowance for June and July. Fellows live together on-campus as a supportive living and learning community, and participate in professional development workshops and opportunities.

The cornerstone of the Idol Family Summer Fellowship program is the intensive enrichment activities throughout the summer, including professional development seminars, networking opportunities, a mentoring component, community service options and off-campus social events. Fellows are expected to stay engaged with the Program long after it ends, ideally mentoring the next generation of Idol Family Fellows!  

In 2021,14 fellows will be selected as members of the 2021 Idol Family Summer Fellows Cohort.
