Overview of Summer Grant Programs
There are four main types of summer opportunities funded by the Lang Center:
- unpaid internships
- faculty-led engaged research
- student-designed projects
- Chester Community Fellowship
Regardless of which type of opportunity a student is applying for, advising is required. This is an important step to ensure that students have a clear understanding of requirements and expectations, are prepared for the application process, and can articulate how their proposed experience allows them to connect academics with action.
Most summer funding applications open on January 15 of each year, with an application deadline of February 15.
