Students are employed full time (M-F, 9-5) by a prominent Boston area organization for 7 weeks during the summer.  Students are supervised by a professional at the host organization, as well as the DLI Director.

Professional Development
Students participate in professional development every week through "site visits" to each host organization.  Led by the DLI Director, 2-3 organizations are visited each week, usually on Wednesdays.  Visits include a tour of the organization, presentations by organizational leaders, and conversations about the professional world.
Educational Grant
Deitch Fellows receive a $2,000 educational grant.
Tasks will vary depending on the organization.  Every effort is made for projects to be varied and important, not menial.  Tasks vary yearly, but as a general reference, the following document includes student projects from the 2019 fellowships.
