Emory Civic Scholars
The Summer 2017 application is now open!
Each year, students are offered exceptional summer internship opportunities within the non-profit, NGO, or public sector consistent with their long-term professional aspirations. Unfortunately, many of these internships are unfunded. The reality of relocating for the summer and incurring all living expenses without the prospect of added income creates a roadblock to students unable to financially support themselves for duration of the three-month internship.
Up to ten (10) $1,500 scholarships will be awarded annually to eligible students. Payment will be made in the form of a scholarship in the students' accounts midway through the summer experience.
Any student demonstrating financial hardship that would deter the acceptance of an otherwise impactful unpaid internship in favor of a less impactful paid summer opportunity. Each applicant must be a full-time, currently matriculating student within The College of Arts and Sciences.
Students participating in the ECS Program will:
- Submit request through Career Center according to program instructions.
- Journal the experience highlighting significant accomplishments and impact on community as result of participation in internship.
- Engage with other ECS program participants once each semester to discuss impact of internship and to share “experiential” learning outcomes as result of internship.
- Serve on the review committee for subsequent year applicants.
