Learn, Grow and Accelerate Your Social Impact Initiative
Do you have an idea that could change someone’s life, our environment or our future? Are you working on a project or social venture that could benefit from coaching, programming and/or financial support? You could spend a semester (or two!) exploring, testing or scaling up your project or venture at the Do Good Accelerator.
We offer an 8-week program during the fall, spring and summer semesters, designed to support students where they need it most, as they work diligently to increase their impact. The Accelerator Fellows program provides students the space, resources and opportunities to transform their ideas into impact.
Each week, students spend time participating in 1:1 coaching sessions with field experts, engaging in workshops that provide insights to valuable tools and resources, and immersing themselves in group activities with their peers who are also tackling a variety of social issues.
Fall 2023 Program Details and Dates
The Accelerator Fellows program is open to all current UMD students. The ideal student for this program is one who is in the implementation phase. If you are a current University of Maryland, College Park student you are eligible to apply.
Fall Fellows will be required to work two days each week at the Accelerator. Fall Fellows will receive a $1,500 stipend during their fellowship.
