Summer Internship Grants
Internships are a great way to gain practical experience in your field of interest regardless of whether or not you are getting paid. In fact, unpaid internships can offer you the opportunity to work for organizations that are meaningful to you, but that cannot afford to pay you due to limited resources. The Career Center understands that supporting yourself during an unpaid internship can be challenging. But don’t fret…we’re here to help! Our summer internship grants can help subsidize your unpaid summer opportunity.
Most employers expect recent graduates to have at least one quality internship experience. However, many internships are unpaid, forcing students to choose between wages or experience. The following opportunities were created in order to provide funding to Lewis & Clark students who demonstrate a financial need. These awards enable students to pursue important academic and career options even in fields that do not traditionally provide internship stipends and in locations where travel and living expenses represent a financial burden.
The Stephanie Fowler & Irving Levin Summer Internship Award (Fowler & Levin) grants each student between $1,500 and $2,500 for living expenses and other internship related costs.
The purpose of the Miller Internship Award (Miller) is to underwrite or supplement expenses of students at Lewis & Clark College who are engaged in scientific research internships in the mathematical and natural sciences. Learn about approved internship opportunities that meet the criteria for the Miller Award.
The John S. Rogers Science Research Program, which is supported in part by the James F. & Marion L. Miller Foundation and works in partnership with L&C’s Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Undergraduate Science Education Program, prepares outstanding students for careers in the sciences by supporting collaborative scientific research between students and faculty.
The grant is awarded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and will allow Lewis & Clark to develop a new core undergraduate curriculum in the mathematical and natural sciences.
