Grants for Summer Internships

Grants are available for qualifying students to help defray the cost of unpaid internships. Internships must be ten weeks in duration, full-time, related to the student's career/academic interests, and unpaid. Grant amounts depend on several factors, including the number of applicants and the funding available. Qualifying students typically receive $3,000 for summer internships in the U.S. and $4,500 for summer internships taken abroad (meant to cover at least a portion of their travel costs, when applicable, and for room and board). The application process is open to students in the spring; applications are reviewed on a rolling basis through the month of June.
