In order to study abroad, it's necessary to allocate funds for transportation, program fees, academic credit, housing, meals, travel documents, insurance, and more. Therefore, it's important to develop a budget and plan your international experience accordingly. To help you, here are some resources that can help fund your internship:
Global Internships Summer Travel Grant: up to $3000 for UVA internship programs and UVA Independent Internships.
Parents Fund Internship Grants: $3000 grant for 2nd and 3rd-year students who have secured unpaid internships in any of the five areas of public concern as defined by the Virginia 2020 Commission.
Z Society Gilbert J. Sullivan Award: offers a $2,000 scholarship awarded to a returning undergraduate student of the University. It is intended to provide an opportunity to take a summer internship otherwise unattainable because of financial constraints.
Sydney Elizabeth Owens scholarship: administered by the Alumni Association, will support a current first-, second- or third-year student who has designed with faculty approval or input, a transformative experience to take place over the course of a semester or summer. The amount of the award for 2018 was $6,000.
Royster-Lawton Fellowship in Social Enterprise provides $3,000 in funding to support summer internships in social enterprise. Staff can match you with a social venture according to your interests, or you can choose your own. Fellows also benefit from career coaching, resume and cover letter development.
