Summer Opportunities


  • Swarthmore- Funded Summer Opportunities- Every summer, Swarthmore College offers students generous funding that allows them to engage in high-impact learning experiences. While some of these are jobs and therefore limited to students with work-authorization, many funded experiential opportunities are available to all students.

  • Summer Housing - Undocumented students who need to stay on campus during the summer, whether for safety or for a particular summer opportunity, may apply for funds to cover the cost of on-campus summer housing. Meet with Dean Karen Henry to discuss details.
  • External Opportunities - Undocumented students also seek external fellowships and independent contracting opportunities during the summers. The following are links to a few possible opportunities. Please understand that this list is not exhaustive. If you would like help evaluating eligibility for an external opportunity, feel free to reach out to Lesley Reyes Piña.
