Funding
Overview

University of Richmond summer internships abroad may be eligible for Weinstein Summer Grant funding and UR Summer Fellowship funding. The maximum award for Weinstein Summer Grants is $3,500, while the maximum award for UR Summer Fellowships is $4,000.

Each award requires a separate application. Application deadlines for both awards appear below, along with general application deadlines for internship applications. Read each program’s application procedure and requirements carefully; only complete applications that fulfill the purpose(s) of the grant will be considered for funding.

International summer internships may be eligible for financial aid if completed for college credit. Be aware that financial aid used for a summer experience will impact overall academic year aid availability. Contact the Financial Aid office to discuss implications.

If experiencing an international summer internship is only possible with funding from one of these two awards, please contact Cheryl Genovese, Summer School manager, and Ashleigh Brock, Spider Internship Funds coordinator, as soon as possible in your planning to discuss options and timelines.

These opportunities are not available to non-UR students.

Weinstein Summer Grants

The Office of International Education offers merit-based Weinstein Grants for internships and research projects conducted abroad during the summer. These grants offer an airfare supplement for students completing international internships or research projects as part of a UR Summer Fellowship-funded experience. These awards are intended to foster and support innovative ideas and experiences that will better equip applicants to navigate in the world, and to understand and be sympathetic toward inter-cultural encounters on campus and abroad. To qualify, the internship or research experience must be outside of the U.S. AND outside of the student’s home country.

In order to receive a Weinstein Grant, applicants must complete the supplemental Weinstein Grant form in addition to their application for another UR Summer Fellowship program. Students who do not submit another program application in addition to their Weinstein Grant application will not be considered for funding.

UR Summer Fellowships

The deadline for completing a UR Summer Fellowship application for internship funding is due April 3, 2017.

UR Summer Fellowships comprise eight different programs (including Weinstein Summer Grants) that provide funding to support students’ summer research and internship experiences. Review the application procedures and program requirements carefully to determine which UR Summer Fellowship program aligns with your desired internship experience. Applicants seeking UR Summer Fellowship funding may apply to more than one Fellowship program, if the internship aligns with the goals and requirements of more than one program. UR Summer Fellowship applications are due several weeks after the internship application, so students can describe their internship placement in detail in their UR Fellowship applications.
