Go South Summer 2021

Thank you for your interest in Go South's 2021 summer! This year, Go South will place fellows in virtual fellowships with established community organizations, city governments, and nonprofits in Savannah, Georgia. Scroll down to view brief descriptions of the positions available this summer, and click "Learn More" to read more about each position, including key skills and qualifications. ​Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this summer's program is entirely virtual. Applications are due March 31. 

Timeline: 8 weeks, from June 7 to July 30, 2021.​

Finances: Go South is working hard to make our program financially accessible to all. This summer, Yale students eligible for the Domestic Summer Award are encouraged to apply for funds. 

Eligibility: Rising sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students from Go South's partner institutions. All disciplines and levels of experience are welcome! While students with a well-articulated interest in the South will be especially strong candidates, you need not be from the South to be a fellow.
