Alumni Sponsored Internship Program

The Williams ’68 Center for Career Exploration awards summer grants to currently enrolled first-years, sophomores, and juniors for unpaid or limited stipend full-time summer internships through our Alumni Sponsored Internship Program (ASIP) in the areas of arts/entertainment, education/teaching, non-profit/community service, social justice, federal/state/local government, international development, law, international affairs, public policy, environment, economic development, startups/entrepreneurship/social entrepreneurship, technology, health/medicine and more!

  • Please Note: If current sophomores or juniors received an ASIP grant in a previous year, they can submit an ASIP application for the second time! First-time ASIP applicants will be given first priority in this order, juniors, sophomores, first-years, and then students applying for the ASIP grant a second time.

ASIP Application deadlines are in February and April.  Application deadline dates and ASIP Application Workshops will be posted in January 2021.

The Williams Alumni Sponsored Internship Program enables students to perform a public service to these organizations and work on special projects with an opportunity to gain experience, explore career fields, develop skills, and build a network.  The ASIP grant is used to help students with expenses during their summer internship (transportation, food, lodging, etc.) Want to know more?

  • Please note: If you receive any funding from any other Williams College Academic Departments/Programs or Administrative Offices including grants/scholarships/stipends/weekly pay in the summer of 2020 you are not eligible to receive an ASIP grant in the summer of 2020. We want to be fair to all students, so instead of awarding 2 types of Williams College funding in one summer to one Williams student, 2 Williams students will each receive one type of funding.
  • In addition, you are strongly encouraged to attend any of the ’68 Center for Career Exploration workshops being offered this year.  Please refer to the upcoming events section on Handshake.
