Student Athletes: Funding Your Summer

For those student athletes who missed last week’s session on the Summer Internship & Funding Opportunities including the Summer Experience Award, below are some deadline reminders for funding your summer:

Yale Fellowships through Students Grants Database

  • Many of the Yale Summer Fellowships are due on March 3rd. For example, the CIPE Summer Fellowships Common Application which  allows students to select from over 20 different fellowships is due on this date.
  • Students do not need to have the proposed internship secured in order to apply. That is why it is called a Project Proposal. It is understood that many internships would not yet be secured due to the early deadline.
  • These fellowship applications typically require Letters of Recommendation so do not wait until the last minute to apply!
  • Apply through Yale’s Students Grants Database

Yale Alumni Community Service Fellowship, Yawkey Community Service Fellowship. Yale Club of Dayton Fellowship & Yale Westchester Alumni Association Fellowship  – variety of deadlines

Yale President’s Public Service Fellowship – deadline March 5

Summer Experience Award (formerly the DSA)  – deadline May 1 . Students must be on financial aid to apply for this funding which now supports both domestic and international internships.
