CICS - Funding for Student Internships
Funding for Student Internships
2009-2010 Call for Applications
The Center for International and Comparative Studies (CICS) announces a call for applications from undergraduate students at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor who are planning to work as interns during the summer of 2009.
Students are eligible to apply if they have secured an internship with an organization, preferably working in the areas of one of these three themes:
* Human rights
* International development
* International security and cooperation
Grants of up to $4,000 to will be awarded to a limited number of students. Students must have an internship assignment secured from a reputable organization. Funding can be used by the student to pay travel and living expenses. These funds are primarily intended for students working unpaid for an organization. If students are being paid, however, it is possible to receive funding to offset high expenses not covered by the organization. Graduating seniors are not eligible to apply.
Applications to support internships with organizations working specifically in areas related to the three CICS themes will be given priority in the selection process.
Awardees must submit a final report to CICS within four weeks after completion of the internship. The report (3 pages in length) should include a summary of the activities completed and work accomplished. Awardees may be asked to make a presentation on the internship experience to students and faculty in the fall of 2009. Reports may appear in the CICS publication.
Applications should include 4 hard copies of the following items:
* Completed CICS funding request cover sheet
* Letter of recommendation
* Detailed budget
* Brief statement of purpose, including a description of the work being done (1 page maximum)
* Evidence that the internship is secured (e.g., offer letter with description of job tasks)
* Any additional materials that describe the organization, such as brochures, website addresses, mission statements.
Members of the CICS advisory board will review the applications and select grant recipients based on the quality of the materials submitted.
The deadline is Wednesday, April 1, 2009, by 5pm (for 2009 summer internships)
