Hubbard Center 2014 Summer Internship Grant Program


The Hubbard Center Summer Internship Grant Program exists to award students for summer internship experiences.  The internships supported by this competitive program will provide a learning experience that connects full-time summer work to individual academic and professional goals.  Selected students will be supported for the summer in the amount of $3,000, and preference will be given to unpaid offers, and work in non-profit, government, and start-up environments.  Two types of internships are funded through the program, and students may apply for grants for one, but not both:

Self-Secured Internships

Students must secure their own internship placement prior to submitting a grant application. These internships can be local, national, or international. The Hubbard Center staff is available to provide you with resources and assist you with your summer internship search. 

Putnam County Community Building Internships

Community Building Internships are opportunities for students to work with local Greencastle/Putnam County non-profits and governmental agencies on projects that contribute to community transformation.  Students will find themselves in a position to positively impact the community where they study while better understanding the strengths and challenges of non-profit work.   Students applying for this option must pursue one of the local Putnam County internships advertised in Tiger Tracks, and must have secured the position prior to submitting a grant application. Please visit Tiger Tracks https://depauw-csm.symplicity.com/students/ to search for available position descriptions and application procedures. Putnam County Community positions will be posted in January, and the number of positions available is currently being finalized.
