EFFECTIVE AS OF APRIL 2, 2020

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.

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 hsadmin@ithaca.edu. 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

Please name this document according to the following convention: (e.g., Smith,A_EmersonInternshipApp_Sum2018), and submit it as an email attachment to hsadmin@ithaca.edu; hard copies will not be accepted.

Additional information and updates can be found on the Office of the Provost's website. NOTE: The deadline for H&S applicants varies from the deadline set by the Office of the Provost. The H&S deadline is noon on April 24, 2020.
