The Williams ’68 Center for Career Exploration awards summer grants in the amount of $3,800 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.
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.)

Alumni Sponsored Internship Program Information Sessions
To apply, you must attend the Alumni Sponsored Internship Program (ASIP) Application Workshop, offered weekly for several weeks before each of the two deadlines. You must attend this workshop even if you have attended one last year.
We will be evaluating your 2020 ASIP Application Packet, including your 2020 ASIP Application, Internship Supervisor Verification Form, and your Resume using the 2020 ASIP Scoring Rubric.
Please submit your ASIP Application Packet, your 2020 ASIP Application, your the Internship Supervisor Verification Form and your updated resume via Handshake
Round 1 Application Deadline Date: Sunday, February 23, 2020, at 11:55 p.m.
Round 2 Application Deadline Date: Sunday, May 3, 2020, at 11:55 p.m.
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.
The ASIP Application Workshop should take about 30 minutes, but Dawn Dellea will be available for the entire hour in order to answer your questions. You can attend this workshop prior to securing a full-time summer internship.
