Fellowships & Work

Community Engaged Fellowships

The CCCE deepens its partnerships with local nonprofits by turning Academic Civic Engagement (ACE) projects into fellowship opportunities for students over Carleton's breaks.

  • Puzak Fund
    The Puzak fund supports activities such as student civic engagement internships and service projects, both over the summer and during the academic year.


For students who qualify for federal or state work study, consider applying for a Community Based Work Study position.

  • Northfield Reads and Counts
    Northfield Reads and Counts is a local implementation of two national educational initiatives (America Reads and America Counts) seeking to involve community members in helping children develop critical reading and mathematics skills.
  • Off-Campus Community Work Study
    A state- and federally-funded program designed to create partnerships between Carleton and community organizations with our students serving as the bridge between the organization and the campus.

Summer Opportunities

Extend your community engagement work into the summer by applying to these local organizations for an internship.
