Friday, Apr 30, 2021

University funding is available to support current first-years, sophomores and juniors who will be spending their summer participating in unpaid opportunities with nonprofits dedicated to social impact, civic engagement and/or public policy work. Undergraduate students currently on leave and returning on July 1 are also eligible for funding.

Applications can be submitted through Handshake beginning Tuesday, May 4, 2021. Applications will then be reviewed on a rolling basis until June 30. Students can expect to hear back within a few days after submitting their applications. 

Students must receive and accept an offer to participate in a project/internship before they are eligible to apply for funding. Once an offer has been accepted, students must submit an application through Handshake consisting of:

  • A description of the project/internship from the nonprofit organization
  • A copy of a letter or email from the nonprofit organization stating the start and end dates of the project/internship and the average expected hours per week
