FUNDING for Unpaid Summer Internships

Internships are an important way to get insights into a career field, obtain valuable professional experience, and develop new skills. To facilitate this, Sewanee offers funding to our students to provide stipends for otherwise-unpaid internships. Why do an ordinary summer job when you can do a meaningful internship in your field of interest? 

To apply for funding, first find an existing internship OR dream up your own at an organization of your choice, then secure it with a sponsor at that organization, and then apply for funding by April 1.
