ENDOWED SUMMER INTERNSHIP FUNDS
Hobart and William Smith Colleges understand that sometimes students face difficult decisions when having to choose between a paying job that is not career related and an unpaid internship that would really make their resume shine. Recognizing that this could mean missed opportunities for our students, generous alums have come forward to endow internship funds that award annual stipends to our students doing unpaid summer internships. These funds are open to all returning students regardless of major and class year.
The Colleges are pleased to announce that for summer 2006 we will have four different endowed internship funds that students can apply to. These include the Harry W. Bowman '65 Award for Leadership and Civic Engagement, the Charles H. Salisbury, Jr. '63, P'94 Endowed Internship Fund, the John A. Ross '66 Endowed Internship Fund, and the newly created L. Thomas Melly '52 Endowed Internship Fund. Students are welcome to apply to more than one qualifying fund with the understanding that if selected, they will only receive an award from one endowed fund.
The application deadline for those seeking funding for summer 2006 will be Friday, April 21, 2006. Funding decisions will be rendered on Friday, April 28th, 2006. Applications may be found online at the Colleges' website: http://www.hws.edu/academics/enrichment/careerdev/funding.asp and will also be available in the Salisbury Center for Career Services' office, located on the first floor of Trinity Hall. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Please note that funds received totaling $600 or more may be taxable. Please call the Salisbury Center for Career Services at (315) 781-3514 regarding policy specifics.
