Not-for-profit: 70% reimbursement
Whitman College/Other college or university: 60% reimbursement
For-profit: 40% reimbursement
Rolling deadline: first come, first served. Applications are due to the Student Engagement Center. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until funding is exhausted.

Summer Whitman Internship Grant (Stipend Award: $2,400)
While general applications are no longer being accepted, there has been an extension for students interested in an experience in Canada. Those applications will be due Friday, April 12.
The Whitman Internship Grant (WIG) provides funding for students to participate in unpaid summer internship experiences. To be eligible, internships must be completely unpaid (no room and/or board provided) and take place during the summer following the student’s freshman, sophomore or junior year. Students must have secured the internship prior to applying for funding. The internship must last at least 10 weeks; students are expected to work at least 20 hours per week. The due date for submitting WIG applications was 5:00 pm Wednesday, March 27, 2013. Drop your application in the Student Engagement Center (219 Reid Campus Center). This is a competitive program; each application will be reviewed primarily on the merit of the internship and the value of the experience in the context of the student’s academic or career goals.
