The Kenyon Summer Internship Stipend was established in the spring of 2014 to provide students who qualify for need-based financial aid with the opportunity to accept unpaid internships. The fund will be used to assist a small number of students with necessary living expenses to complete an internship in the city/area that they will be working.
Available to students with need-based financial aid, this fund helps cover costs associated with food, travel, lodging, and professional attire necessary to successfully to complete the internship. After completing the internship, all recipients of the internship stipend are required to complete a reflection project to be shared with the campus community. Examples may include posters, PowerPoints, digital stories, etc.
If you are an international student interested in applying for funds, please contact a member of Center for Global Engagement staff to discuss work authorization.
Applicants are encouraged to pursue internships outside of their home countries, however, Kenyon does not support, fund, or sponsor student internships in countries that are on the Travel Advisory List levels 3 & 4 or the OFAC Sanctions list. It is the responsibility of the applicant to review travel warnings and OFAC sanctions prior to applying for an internship outside of the United States. Funding may be rescinded if a country is placed on either of these lists after the application has been approved.
Beginning January 15th, students may apply through the student employment website, Symplicity. Search under internships for the application.

In order to qualify for such funds, students will need to: 1) be exceeding the estimated cost of books and course materials for the particular semester for which they are requesting funds and 2) have consulted with the Financial Aid Office and exhausted all of their loan options for the particular semester. To find out if you are eligible for the Academic Support Funds, follow these steps:
For textbook requests, a letter will be given to students to be presented at the bookstore upon check out. For music lessons requests, your name will be submitted to the Music Department. Music lessons will only be granted to students who have not requested funds for this reason before and who have exhausted all of their financial aid options. For any other requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
NOTE: Students will need to submit a new application for each semester for which they are requesting student success funds. Any changes in personal and/or family circumstances should be reported to the Financial Aid Office (even mid-semester or mid-year) to determine whether their financial aid package can be adjusted.
