Harris CDO is proud to support unpaid summer internships in the non-profit and government sectors.  Read below to learn more about each specific scholarships fund.

James Barlett EPIC Summer Internship Fund

Thanks to the generosity of Harris alumnus John Bartlett, EPIC offers paid internships for Harris students each summer summer. These internships are part of the James Bartlett Fellowship Program, which offers funding for internships in energy and environmental research during the academic year and over the summer.

Interns have the opportunity to assist EPIC faculty with research and data collection, or to conduct their own research project under faculty guidance in the area of environmental and energy economics and policy. Research will culminate in a final report. We do our best to align interns with their preferred area of research, but cannot guarantee work with any particular faculty member. While research will be the main focus of the internship, students will also gain experience with grant and proposal writing, communications, and program coordination on an as-needed basis within the Institute.

Interns may be invited to take active part in seminars and weekly workshops, and to attend EPIC-sponsored conferences and events for which they may be asked to draft summary reports.

Amount: $5000

The Kreisman Initiative on Housing Law and Policy Summer Fellowship Program

The Kreisman Initiative on Housing Law and Policy began at the University of Chicago Law School in the fall of 2013. The Initiative, co-directed by Lee Anne Fennell and Benjamin J. Keys, seeks to bring UChicago ideas to bear on housing-related legal and policy debates through scholarly research, external engagement, and educational programming. The Initiative was made possible by a generous gift from David Kreisman, AB'60, JD'63, and his wife, Susan. As part of this mission, the Initiative is providing a limited number of stipends to Harris students who have secured unpaid housing-related internships. Such opportunities may include but are not limited to housing-related nonprofits, think tanks, or government agencies. Domestic and international housing-related internships or projects are acceptable and encouraged.   

Amount: $5000
