A&S Internship Grants

** NOW ACCE​PTING APPLICATIONS (deadline March 30) **

The College of Arts and Sciences is now accepting applications for 2018 A&S Internship Grants, which are made possible with funds from the UK Women and Philanthropy Network. These grants support undergraduate and graduate students in the humanities and social sciences who wish to pursue internships in the non-profit and government sectors during the 2018 summer. These funds will help defray the out-of-pocket travel costs and living expenses while students participate in internships. Students may request stipends of up to $5000 by completing an application; providing a budget and a letter of reference from faculty; and submitting a 500-word essay detailing a rationale for the grant. See application form and instructions here. Seniors who apply must be returning for the fall semester. Students from the sciences are ineligible. When feasible, priority is given to first-generation students. The deadline to apply is March 30, 2018, and receipt of grant is contingent on formal letter of acceptance for internship by May 1, 2018. For more information, please contact Dr. Anna Bosch
