Merrimack College Master in Community Engagement Fellowship Deadline


March 3, 2021

One-year fellows complete a nine-month field-based professional experience in a partner school, college, non-profit or community-based organization, 25 hours per week. Two-year fellows complete a 21-month professional experience, 10 hours per week. Community Engagement Fellows work hand-in-hand with their partner organizations to make a deep and powerful impact in the communities in which they serve.

Site Requirements

Sites pay a financial commitment of $15,500 per fellow to Merrimack College over the 2021-2022 academic year. If you have a two-year fellow, the fee is pro-rated over the two years. Fellows receive a full-tuition scholarship in exchange for their service commitment.

Sites identify a supervisor who is the fellow’s primary point person and who is available for regular communication and meetings with the fellow, including weekly face-to-face supervision meetings. We recommend that supervisors are those in mid-level administrative positions with supervisory experience, who are able to commit the time to support the fellow.

Fellowship Activities

Fellows build capacity in critical areas needed by each organization by providing project-based and overall administrative support such as:

researching foundations and writing grant proposals

planning special events

developing and managing programs

developing communications, marketing and social media strategies

facilitating diversity initiatives


One-year fellows work from mid-August to mid-May, providing 25 hours per week of service to their organizations over the course of the Fellowship. Two-year fellows provide 10 hours per week of service to their organizations over the course of the Fellowship. All fellowships begin in mid-August.Contact Audrey Falk, Program Director, at to learn more.
