Fellowship Internship Grant (FIG)

 The 2021 FIG competition is now closed.
The 2022 competition will be announced in spring 2022.

The Fellowship Internship Grant provides funding to undergraduate students at LUC, who have a 2021 summer unpaid internship that could support an eventual application to a  nationally-competitive scholarship that the FO works with.

To apply, email the following material to Lisa Knepshield:

  • A copy of the signed agreement between you and the internship provider, confirming the start and end dates of the internship, that it is unpaid, your responsibilities as an intern, and complete contact information of the internship provider (please send this as an email attachment);
  • In the body of the email, include your LUC ID, and confirm that you understand it is your responsibility to attend at least one Fellowship Office information session in the Fall semester 2021, to prepare to apply for the nationally-competitive fellowship of your choice (you must name the fellowship you plan to apply to); and
  • A short essay (no more than 250 words) detailing how you will relate your internship experience to that specific fellowship application.  Please send this as a .docx or pdf via email attachment

Awards from $500 up to $2000 will be made.  A student may only apply for one award per summer.  Students who have previously won a FIG cannot apply again.

Deadline to apply is Friday, April 23rd.
Decisions will made and communicated to applicants
by Wednesday, April 28th, 2021.
