Step Two

Once You Confirm Your Internship

I. Submit the Internship Confirmation Form
Submit the required Internship Confirmation Form after you receive your internship offer or course enrollment. This form will require you to confirm the location, duration, and expected costs of your summer experience. Additionally, this form will require you to complete and attach the following items:
  1. Budget Proposal Form (EXCEL). Please use this worksheet to provide details of your budget plan. The Summer Funding Selection Committee will evaluate your proposed budget and determine your final grant offer (please note: this amount may be less than the amount requested in your Budget Proposal Form).
  2. Confirmation of internship offer.  A copy of e-mail correspondence will suffice. Please save document as a .PDF file before uploading.
  3. Health and Safety Planning Form (DOC). This form is only for students participating in experiences outside the U.S. or away from their home country.
Colgate will not sponsor grants to international destinations that currently, or at any point during the application process, have heightened associated health and/or safety risks – this limitation may be negotiable to students who are travelling back to their home country.
II. Career Services will issue your final grant offer
Upon review of the contents of your Internship Confirmation Form, Career Services will issue you a Final Offer Letter, including the exact amount of your Summer Funding award (please note: this amount may be less than the amount requested in your Budget Proposal Form).
III. Submit all required paperwork to Career Services within one week of receiving your final offer, and no later than June 1 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
