Student Internships, Fellowships, Language Study and Research

Students who are able to pursue a funded internship, research opportunity, language study or career skill building opportunity remotely may be eligible for awards ranging from $500 to $2,500, depending on the activities proposed. 

Qualifying activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Remote Internships through the Hale Center for Career Development, the academic centers, and the Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Languages [UISFL] grant
  • Summer online coursework or workshops related to career preparation through the Hale Center
  • Remote fellowships (Myers, ConnSSHARP, Sophomore Civic Leaders Scholarship Program )

  • Online language courses funded by the Robert E. Proctor Scholarship or the Chu-Kuo Fellowship for Chinese Language Study

Students will have the opportunity to submit proposals between April 30 and May 31 for consideration by academic centers, the Hale Center and academic departments. Proposals will be evaluated according to criteria that have been created for these remote learning experiences. Notification dates will be specific to each program and will be indicated when you apply. Students who require additional support to ensure they have adequate connectivity (WiFi) for their remote summer experience may be eligible for funding through the Student Emergency Fund. 

Students who were accepted to the ConnSSHARP program before April 15 do not need to reapply. Awards will be adjusted to $2,500 for this remote research experience.

Students who have already applied to the Summer Science Research Institute do not need to reapply and will be contacted directly by co-coordinators Emily Tarsis and Leslie Brown with more information about this program.
