Note: All undergraduates participating in international internships must meet with a study abroad adviser and register with the Global Education Office before submitting their internship funding application. Furthermore, students whose experience is in a country determined to be at high risk by the U.S. Department of State and/or the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) must submit a petition to the Global Education Office.

Robins Internship Grant

Through the generosity of alumnus Charles Robins, Johns Hopkins University offers funding for selected students to gain business-related or economic development-related experience through internships in East, Southeast, or South Asia. The experience can be in private industry, or it can be in a government or nonprofit setting as long as the position is focused on business/economic development, finance, accounting, marketing, or management.

Applications can be found by searching “Robins” in the jobs section of the Handshake platform.

Second Decade Society Internship Grant

The Second Decade Society (SDS) is the alumni leadership development program for the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences. Thanks to the efforts of the SDS, several grants of up to $5,000 each are available to students for summer internships. Internships must be unpaid or sponsored by a nonprofit organization.

Un(der)paid Life Design Lab Internship Scholarships 

Many internships that students get in the summers are unpaid or underpaid. Still other students commit significant time to volunteering or immersive programs rather than summer internships. The Un(der)paid Life Design Lab Internship Scholarship grants provide up to $3,000 in funding to help make ends meet and to acknowledge the significant value of these experiences for developing professional skills.
