At Harris, we recognize that summer internships are critical to your success, and we want students to be able to pursue the work that is most meaningful to them without consideration of financial barriers.  Due to high volume of funding interest, this process requires a formal application with no guarantee of funding. We will evaluate applications based on eligibility, strength of answers and scope of work.

To be eligible for funding, you must be a currently enrolled Harris student pursuing an unpaid summer internship in the non-profit or public sector.  Your internship must be confirmed before you apply, and it must be full-time (30+ hrs/week) for at least 8 weeks between June and October 2019.

Please note that while we encourage you to apply to highest funding source you can get, you might be accepted to a lower funding source. However, to set you up for success you will do our best to give you the the highest funding amount. Example: if you are researching housing policy in France, we encourage you to apply for three different funds (France Chicago Center, and The Midway Fund). We will try to give you funding from the France Chicago Center fund, because it is the highest paying scholarship for which your work is eligible.

 

All summer internship stipends are processed as a financial aid stipend and thus, can have an impact on recipients’ summer financial aid package. Students who intend to take summer classes and apply for summer financial aid (including loans) must note this in their application
