Below you will find information regarding eligibility to apply for summer funding, and policies and procedures around the process. Please also refer to the Summer Funding Sources
page to learn more about the different available funds and their donors, or to the Summer Funding Application Process
site to better understand the process through which to apply.
Students may apply for summer funding before
they receive or accept an offer for a summer experience. If an applicant does NOT have a confirmed opportunity at the time of application, he/she should complete the application based on a specific position, and outline explicit internship objectives for engaging in that particular opportunity.
The Summer Funding Committee will evaluate applications based on initial proposals.
If an applicant is offered and accepts an internship other than that proposed in his/her application:
- The student must resubmit his/her proposal to demonstrate how the new internship is comparable in value and its ability to satisfy the projected goals of the original experience.
- Students should consult with Shauna Hirshfield in Career Services (firstname.lastname@example.org, 315-228-7380) immediately when an employer makes an offer and before the student accepts it.
- Career Services reserves the right to retract funding offers if the final internship does not accomplish similar goals to those outlined on the original proposal.
Students will automatically forfeit funding if they secure an internship by rescinding their acceptance of another offer.
