Fellowship & Externship Program

The Center for Social Impact & Innovation is excited to invite applications to GCNYC’s Inaugural Fellowship & Externship Program!


Fellows will be appointed for the period April 15 to August 30, 2021 and shall have the privilege to enroll in one course. Working with the Center Director, Fellows will design and execute an Externship project that innovates GCNYC’s capacity to serve the Common Good and advance Glasgow Caledonian University’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Glasgow Caledonian New York College offers Master’s of Science degrees in Business for Social Impact and Sustainability; Sustainable Fashion; and Risk, Resilience and Integrity Management. Fellows will benefit from a community of faculty, alumni, and graduate students committed to driving innovation and practical solutions for social benefit. Alumni are social entrepreneurs and sustainability strategists for corporations and non-profit organizations. Partners affiliated with the Center include Macy’s, PVH, and Forum for the Future.

The Fellowship and Externship Program is intended for exceptionally qualified college graduates or rising juniors or seniors who wish to advance their education and professional capabilities in social impact and sustainability before pursuing a graduate degree. This opportunity is intended for applicants who will be able to actively participate in the life of the College and would like to grow professionally through applied mentorship and study.

Fellows may apply credit requirements for any course they successfully complete if they are subsequently accepted to pursue a GCNYC M.S. degree. Depending solely on home institution requirements, fellows may be able to earn credit for the supervised externship.
