Summer Internship Grant Program
Provides partial support for unpaid internships that are secured in non-profit, government, and start-up (in business fewer than 8 years) environments around the world.
The internship must be registered for Extended Studies to be eligible for the Summer Grant. The application is located in Handshake. Internships Supported by this competitive program will provide a learning experience that connects full-time summer work to individual academic and professional goals.
- Applicant must be a current full-time student & will return to DePauw campus the following fall semester. This may include participation in on-campus courses, a semester off-campus study programs or a semester off-campus internship program.
- Internship offer must already be secured prior to application.
- Internship must be at least 8 weeks long and over 300 hours.
- Internship supervisor must not be a family member.
- Internship cannot duplicate a past experience. If returning to intern with a previous employer, you must take on new responsibilities and projects.
- Remote or virtual internships may be approved on a case-by-case basis.
- Expectations: Provided that there is a reasonable case to be made for the majority of the internship to be completed remotely or in a combination of in-office and remote work time, and there is a clear pan for regular (e.g. weekly) check-ins with your supervisor, the internship will likely be approved. Please contact the Hubbard Center for more information.
- Programs that require payment to participate must offer academic or curricular support (e.g. an internship seminar) in addition to internship placement.
- Internship cannot involve working as an aide to a former high school teacher.
- Start-Up Employer Requirements: Typically, no more than two students will be funded per start-up. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
All students will be required to submit tax forms (W-9 or W8-BEN) and banking information for Direct Deposit to the Business Office, as this will be the standard form of Summer Internship Grand funds delivery for 2019.
