At this time, due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, only students with an internship opportunity that involves working remotely may submit an Internship Learning Contract to be registered in a credit-bearing internship course for summer 2020. No on-site internship opportunities will be considered until further notice.
EFFECTIVE AS OF APRIL 2, 2020
This year, the award provides students with up to $1,500 per internship credit registered, up to a maximum of three credits ($4,500). All Emerson Internships are credit-bearing, with a one credit minimum, but preferably for three credits or more.
The H&S application to be the School's nominee has two components:
1) a letter of support from the faculty member who will serve as the sponsor for the internship - this letter should be sent directly to the H&S Dean's office, as an email attachment to email@example.com. The faculty sponsor letter should be in the dean's office by the deadline below.
2) a proposal of one to two pages that includes the following information:
- your full name and permanent address
- your major(s) (and minor(s) if any), and overall GPA
- number of credits you will register for during the summer (awardees must register for at least one credit)
- site and dates (estimate will suffice) of the internship, and a brief description of the nature of the organization and the internship responsibilities
- a discussion of how the internship is integrated with your educational program, and your professional/career plans
