Spring 2017: Stipend Funding and Robert Beane ’58 Intern Scholar Program

Through the generosity of Lafayette alumni, parents, and the Senior Class, Career Services has funds available to support students doing unpaid, underpaid, or high-cost summer internships. Applications become available early in February, so it can be advantageous for your student to use time during their Interim break to begin thinking about their search and the important essay portion of their application.

  • The Summer Funding Stipends awards are between $1,000 and $3,000, and some are designated by career focus and/or geographical location.Students do not need to have an internship secured in order to apply!
  • The Robert Beane ’58 Intern Scholar Program awards $4,000 to successful applicants and pairs them with a mentor in their general area of career interest. These applicants must have an internship secured in order to apply (those not selected are automatically considered for a Summer Funding Stipend.)

All details will be widely marketed to students across all our platforms, to ensure all students are aware of timelines, eligibility, and application instructions.
