Summer is the perfect time to explore meaningful ways to diversify your liberal arts experience, deepen your social justice commitments, prepare for graduate school and/or explore careers as undergraduates. If you have skills, summer projects provide an outlet to hone them and put them to good use. If there are skills you need to develop, that are not covered in the curriculum, they give you a chance to do so.
Each summer approximately 30 percent of Swarthmore students apply for and receive funding from the College to participate in these otherwise unpaid experiences. Internships, research, mentoring, non-profit work — whatever your interests and goals and wherever you hope they take you, Swarthmore provides generous support for a wide range of life-shaping opportunities, for all students.
