Summer 2021 Internship Grant

The Summer Internship Grant provides funding for current students pursuing summer opportunities that advance their career or academic interests. Grants range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand, depending on a student’s need and proposed budget. This competitive grant is meant to help meet basic living expenses. Students are responsible for finding an internship and covering expenses beyond the value of the grant. Students are also encouraged to work with a mentor, a professor, and/or University Career Services to find suitable summer experiences. Please note that international travel will not be funded in 2021.

Please note that priority will be given to students who will graduate in December 2021 or May 2022. Priority is also given to students who received need-based financial aid during the current academic year. Recipients of this grant must complete a short reflection statement upon finishing their internship. Click here to access the Summer Internship Grant  Application - Summer 2021.
