Internship Financial Assistance
Thanks to the generosity of Eckerd alumni, family, and friends, an endowment has been created that will fund academic internship opportunities for students.
Typically, this funding is used to support internship experiences that take place off-campus, under the supervision of an external organization. If an internship will take place on campus, or under the supervision of a member of Eckerd’s faculty or staff, the applicant will need to explain how this situation will help him/her/them develop skills that will be applicable in other professional environments.
Funds may be used to cover travel, housing, and/or some personal expenses (such as food, professional clothing, or supplies necessary for the internship). They may not be used to fund any work completed for the internship or to replace lost wages from other employment. The student will be asked to provide a detailed budget and budget narrative explaining how requested funds will be used.
Funding applications for internships taking place in Winter/Spring 2024, please use this link.
Awards will be announced late Fall semester.
Information Session: Monday, October 9⋅3:30 – 4:20pm
