The Impact Consulting Fellowship (ICF) is one of CSVC’s most esteemed programs and has been running for over 5 iterations now. This unique program gives students of all levels at the University of Maryland the opportunity to provide hands-on, pro-bono consulting work within a team for B-Corporations, non-profit organizations, and for-profit impact-driven organizations in various industries.
ICF Frequently Asked Questions
To participate as a general student, UMD students of any major across undergraduate, master’s, MBA, and doctoral programs are eligible to apply. To become a team lead, eligibility is limited to UMD master’s and doctoral students.
Non-MBA students applying for the team lead role must be beyond the first year of their degree. Applicants enrolled in Plus 1 MS programs are not eligible for team lead positions. If an applicant does not satisfy the stated requirements but believes their circumstances and work experiences uniquely qualify them for a leadership position, they may contact the program lead, Romir Chandra at email@example.com, to discuss their case.
ICF iterations begin in the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters as well as at the beginning of the summer.
Applications launch 2-3 weeks before the program officially begins each term and are collected through Google Forms. Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Instagram at @creatingvalue to hear when applications open!
ICF is an amazing opportunity to build consulting skills, work with a team, expand your network, and gain professional experience. MBA students also have the unique opportunity to lead their student consulting group throughout the term.
