Fellowship Internship Grant (FIG)

 The 2022 FIG competition is closed.
The 2023 FIG competition will open in spring 2023.

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

To apply next year, 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 2023, 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.

The 2023 deadline will be in April, 2023.
