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, entrepreneurship/social entrepreneurship, and 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.
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.

Application Instructions – Williams Alumni Sponsored Internship Program
Round 1 Application Deadline Date: Sunday, February 17, 2019
Round 2 Application Deadline Date: Sunday, April 21, 2019
Please note: If you receive any funding from any other Williams College Department or Program including grants/scholarships/stipends/weekly pay in the summer of 2019 you are not eligible to receive an ASIP grant in the summer of 2018. 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.
