We’ve declared this week: Bucknell Public Service Week from November 1st – November 5th and, with the help of the Bucknell Public Service Network, we will be having special events around Public Service, Non-Profit and Government Careers. So in the spirit of this Public Service week we’d like to quickly highlight some funding options available for Non-Profit and Government internships that are frequently unpaid. Hopefully this helps you find a way to explore the field you want while still earning some extra cash.
- BPIP Internship Fund
- Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship – established in 1987, this is a competitive national fellowship program that provides college graduates with the opportunity to gain a Washington perspective on key issues of peace and security. Supported by a stipend, the Fellows serve as full-time junior staff members at the participating organization of their choice. The program also arranges meetings for the Fellows with policy experts.
- J. W. Saxe Memorial Prize – A prize of $2,000 awarded to 1 or more college/university students involved in public service. The award is meant to enable the student to gain practical experience in public service by taking a no-pay or low-pay job or internship during a summer or other term. Preference will be given to applicants who have already found such a position, but who require additional funds.
- Smithsonian Opportunities for Research and Study
