Summer Funds

If you want to intern or study abroad this summer, there are scholarships! A popular one is the Gilman International Scholarship Program!


If you are traveling or doing an internship domestically, some campuses have funds to financially support you if you are doing an unpaid internship and even offer summer school programming in a different state. All you have to do is ask!
