The SIS grant round is now closed.
Looking to support a short-term or part-time experience in social action and social justice this summer? The Summer Internship Support (SIS) grant program offered by the Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility may be able to cover “just enough” of the modest expenses you incur as you engage in skill building to make you a more effective agent of social change. Grants cover only the housing, food/consumer disposables and local commuting necessary for you to serve a non-profit, governmental or non-governmental agency in your hometown, or further afield, depending on your ability to meet any expenses not covered by the grant. The grants, which are “capped” at no more than $185 per week, and for no more than 10 weeks, will be available until the funds are completely depleted, and are not intended to support you for the entire summer, nor to provide summer earnings offset. Airfare and the expenses incurred in travel (visa fees, required inoculations, etc.) are not covered by this grant. A detailed, well-researched budget will be required in the application. Questions?
