Upstate Institute Summer Field School
Our summer field school allows students to remain in the region over the summer to work with community organizations on research projects in a variety of sectors.

Community Based Work Study
The Upstate Institute and Max Shacknai Center for Outreach, Volunteerism and Education (COVE) have three openings for community-based, work-study fellowships for the 2018-2019 academic year. Interested students should submit their applications as soon as possible through the Student Employment section on the Colgate Portal. Community Fellows will work with a local not-for-profit or municipal office on a project or series of projects that have been identified as critical to the mission of the organization. Students will provide a variety of services to these organizations, which might include planning and hosting special events, collecting data, working with clients, organizing archives, participating in program development, and writing or researching grants or promotional material. Through this experience, students will complete independent work that provides a community benefit and will develop a deeper understanding of the issues facing the community, along with a strong appreciation for what the Hamilton community has to offer.
These positions require applicants to serve as ambassadors to the community on behalf of Colgate. Students should be professional, personable and reliable, with strong communication and computer skills. Students will be involved in various aspects of programming and event planning for these organizations. The student will assist with marketing and social media, as well as various administrative tasks.
