Every January, Boston Latin School sophomores, juniors and seniors are invited to apply to the DLI Fellowship, an experiential learning opportunity during the summer focused on industry and leadership.

Students are employed for seven weeks by a prominent Boston area organization. Tasks will vary, but work will be real, not menial.  Students will be supervised by a professional and receive guidance from the DLI Director throughout the experience.
