Summer Fellowships

Graduate students from across Harvard are competitively selected to spend the summer embedded in local government, where they will meaningfully contribute to improving government services and present their deliverables and recommendations to the mayor and senior leaders. This multi-disciplinary cohort will learn how to apply the tools of data-driven decision making, human-centered design techniques, and cross-sector collaboration to help city leaders drive government performance and address pressing social problems.
