Civic Engagement Summer of Service

Summer of Service provides opportunities for students to live, serve and learn with others in the community.   

Ten to twelve undergraduate Bryn Mawr College students are selected to live together on campus, spend 32 hours each week interning for a service or activism organization in the Bryn Mawr/Philadelphia region and spend an additional three to five hours each week in service learning activities including ongoing training and reflection activities.

Students live together in housing provided on campus and receive a $3,000 stipend for the ten-week program. Each student also receives a monthly SEPTA Trail Pass for June and July to pay for transportation to and from their service site. (Civic Engagement will provide individual SEPTA fares for travel to and from service sites occurring in May and/or August.)


Applicants must apply using our online application. The application must be completed in one sitting. You may not save your entries and return. 

Deadline: Monday, April 3, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. ET
