Service Learning Summer Internship Scholarsip

This scholarship was initiated by the Hemera Foundation, which supports innovative organizations and programs that foster basic human goodness in individuals and society.  Toward this mission, the Service Learning Summer Internship Scholarship will support and inspire students to pursue summer internships within philanthropic or direct service/social service organizations. 

Additional Funding Resources

In addition to the aid you may receive from IES Abroad and IES Internships, as well as your school, you may be able to put funds from other, outside resources towards your experience—review our list of additional funding resources. Note that many of these opportunities are designated for study abroad, rather than internship programs and may not apply if your program is in the United States or does not meet term or credit length requirements.
