ELIGIBILITY

  • You must be returning as a full-time student in fall 2018, and be in good academic and social standing.
  • You do NOT need to have an internship secured at the time of application!
  • You may not be doing the internship for academic credit through a department.
  • You may seek credit through INT 200.
  • The internship must be at least 240 hours.
  • You must be interning for an employer other than Lafayette College.
  • The internship may not be part of an academic program either in the U.S. or abroad.
  • Internships secured through a fee-based internship placement service are not eligible.
  • Students awarded funding through the Robert Beane ’58 Intern Scholar Program cannot be the recipient of any other compensation from the College or another source for their internship!

For example:
* Posse Summer Stipend (NOT the Posse scholarship)
* Rotary Club summer internship award
* Lafayette end-of-academic-year awards (which would negate eligibility for our awards): https://catalog.lafayette.edu/4128.htm

Students receiving summer assistance can’t “double dip” by receiving our funding, too. This enables us to support students receiving NO funding assistance for their internship.
