Summer Internship Funding Awards
2019 Funding is now on a waiting list. Applications will be reviewed when funds become available. (as of 4/27/19).
What are the Internship Funding Awards?
The Summer Internship Funding Awards Program is designed with the intention to increase the ability of all Colorado College students to participate in internship opportunities, many of which remain unpaid or underpaid.
All currently enrolled Colorado College students who will return to campus for a minimum of one semester in the fall of 2019 are welcome to apply. Colorado College students are eligible to receive one award during their four undergraduate years.
Eligible internships must be a minimum of 6 weeks and 240 hours. If the internship is outside of the U.S., your location and travel plans must be approved. Applicants must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to be eligible. The internship must be away from the CC campus, and third-party programs are not eligible. While the internship does not need to be confirmed or accepted at the time of application, verification of the confirmed internship will be required before the award is officially secured.
Summer 2019 Internship Awards
Summer Internship Funding 2019 is on a WAITING LIST as of 3/19/19. Students are welcome to apply, with the knowledge that their application may or may not be able to be considered.
The 2019 Internship Funding Application opened February 18, 2019. All applications must be submitted through Summit (under Academic Dean's Office/CC Provost Office). The application will remain open until all funds are allocated. Your internship does not have to be accepted or confirmed prior to applying for Summer Internship Funding.
To prepare for your application, please begin to consider a full description of your experience and what you hope to gain. As well as work with your supervisor on a formal offer letter once you are accepted into your internship. Details are included in the Frequently Asked Questions.
Prior to receiving funding, all recipients must complete an agreement to fulfill set expectations and requirements throughout and after their internship, as well as participate in a minimum of two professional development workshops offered by the Career Center in block 8. An alternative will be available for students unable to participate in on-campus workshops.
Once applications are submitted we will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible. As funds become depleted, the process may take a bit longer. If you have specific questions about your eligibility, or the process in general, check out our Frequently Asked Questions. If your question is not answered, please contact Andrea Culp, in the Career Center.
