Olin College Public Interest Technology Clinic Summer Fellowship Program
The student-run Olin Public Interest Technology Clinic will continue to build and expand one of its signature initiatives: offering summer fellowships to 5 students for in-depth PIT work with partner organizations. Renewing our fellowship program creates new opportunities for Olin students to envision themselves on and make concrete progress toward PIT career paths. It also provides the time needed to develop our own fundraising effort for future fellow cohorts. Our deliverables include 5 new community-engaged PIT projects by our fellows with reports shared with Olin and the PIT-UN community. We will also refine and share out our materials and documentation for how to deliver a completely student-run PIT fellowship competition.
The Olin Public Interest Technology Clinic will a) support students doing public interest technology (PIT) projects with outside stakeholders, b) offer summer fellowships for PIT work with partner organizations, and c) convene events and conversations about engineering, policy, and society, and our responsibility as engineers.
