Fidelity Charitable provides
students with research and internship opportunities, challenging them to find new ways to use Big Data to connect, empower, and engage donors.

“Last summer, my team worked with Fidelity Charitable’s data, designing an information system to provide insight into philanthropic trends. Engaging with industry
