Students who are interested in applying for Summer 2013 Grant or Endowed Internship Funding must complete this online application for consideration. Students may ONLY apply to ONE funding source.
Students must have secured an 8-10 week, full-time, unpaid, summer internship to be eligible to apply for College funding. Two part-time internships are NOT eligible for funding.
Grant and Endowed Programs are competitive and look for clarity in presentation, support from the sponsoring organization/agency/business, academic preparation and a link to the applicant’s interest. These programs also call for well-defined responsibilities, originality, uniqueness of the internship opportunity, and how it fits within the criteria of the specific internship Grant or Endowed Program. Students applying for a Grant Program must contact the Grant Program’s chair or coordinator to explore whether the internship fits within the mission of the Program.
The stipend amount awarded is based on a student-generated budget that outlines various transportation, housing, and food expenses expected to be incurred while completing the internship.
All funding decisions will be determined by the first week of May, 2013.
Detailed instructions and access to information about the required application documents are available on the CDO Internship Applications and Deadlines webpage, which includes:
*Resume (reviewed by a CDO representative is highly recommended);
