Internship/Research Funding Opportunities

Arts and Sciences / Harrington School Internship Fund

Internships are a great way to build experience and get leg up on the job market. But many internship opportunities are unpaid, making them less accessible for many students. The Arts and Sciences/Harrington School Internship Fund offers $1,000 stipends for undergraduates participating in an internship opportunity. The funding can help to cover costs associated with transportation, professional attire, and food at the job site. It can also help to offset the need to work a paying job during the internship period. Find eligibility requirements and apply by clicking the button. Applications due in either September (fall) or January (spring).
