Weisman Family Internship Grant Program

The Weisman Family Internship Grant Program is funding designated for students in the International Studies Program participating in summer internship experiences. Funding for internship-related expenses is awarded based on submitted proposals summarizing a position that the student has already accepted.

The amount of the stipend is limited and will be determined based on available funds and the number of selected students. The stipend may be used by students to partially support housing and related costs associated with the internship. Students may only receive a Weisman award once, and fee or tuition paying programs that involve an internship are ineligible. Pre-majors (rising sophomores) will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

To submit a proposal for funding by the Weisman Family Grant Program, fill out the application form by April 1.
