Harvard Club of Dallas Summer Community Service Fellowship Program


Dear Harvard Community,


Each summer, Harvard Club of Dallas sponsors a current undergraduate student from the Dallas area to pursue a summer internship locally in a public service field. This is the mission of our Betsey Bradley and Hal Urschel M.D. Community Service FundThe program, known as the Harvard Clubs’ Summer Community Service Fellowship, is provided in partnership with the Center for Public Interest Careers and run through the Phillips Brooks House at Harvard.


Every summer, Harvard Club of Dallas has facilitated one or more undergraduates to return to Dallas to pursue a community service fellowship, something they might not be able to afford without our financial help. The applications are vetted in Cambridge, then decided locally. These provide great returns to our community, great experiences for the undergraduate student, and benefits our Club. The Club has provided over 4000 hours of skilled hands-on student support within the past decade to local non-profit organizations and over $35000 in donations.

Ways to help

We rely on our Alumni and Club supporters to make this possible. Because we provide each student a stipend between $4000 and $5000 (depending on the length of their internship), we need your financial support. Every donation helps us meet our goal of enabling these exceptional students to explore a public service career.


Can you spare $100.00 - or whatever makes sense for you - for a great, well-intentioned kid? Donations can be made online by clicking here or by sending a check to our Club Administrator at the address listed below. All donations are tax deductible.
