Internship Stipend

Cooke College Scholars and Cooke Transfer Scholars are invited to apply for a one-time stipend of up to $6,000 to pursue an unpaid summer internship at a non-profit or government organization in 2021.

Internship Stipend Information

UPDATE– REDUCED HOUR REQUIREMENTS!

Due to the current state of affairs, the Foundation is allowing reduced internship hours for a prorated stipend amount. Here are the adjusted tiers:

Internship Hours New Young Scholar to

College Scholar Stipend

Current College and Undergraduate Transfer Scholar Stipend
50% (160 – 239 hours) $2,000 $3,000
75% (240 – 319 hours) $3,000 $4,500
100% (320+ hours) $4,000 $6,000

 

You must denote the number of hours on your stipend application. Please note that this is an exceptional change to our process just for summer 2020 and 2021.


The application has a rolling deadline. Scholars will have two opportunities to apply for the stipend:

  • April 8 Deadline (Early Decision): Submit for April 20 early notification
  • May 13 Deadline (Regular Decision): Submit for May 27 regular notification

Applying early decision will allow you an opportunity to receive feedback, edit, and resubmit your application for consideration in the regular decision round if not initially selected.

For those interested in the Cooke National Council for Community and Education Partnerships Internship, 12Plus Internship, or the Karel Fellowship, note that the application processes and timelines are different from the Summer Internship Stipend.

Each year we receive an increased number of quality applications and the process is selective. To help you better prepare your application, please consider the following:

  • Relevance to Major/Career: We are looking for well thought out applications with internships that align with academic and career goals.
  • Depth of Proposed Experience and Goal Setting: Whether the internship is meant as a deeper pursuit of a previous similar internship or experience or as an exploratory experience to help you narrow down your interests and goals, you should provide a thoughtful reflection of why you chose that particular experience.
  • Evaluation and Evidence of Support: We are looking for clear descriptions of probable tasks and projects you have identified with your supervisor. Please do your best to accurately reflect what you will be working on for the summer; we do recognize that actual projects are likely to change slightly as you begin the internship and we will not penalize you for those changes.
  • Scholar Standing: You must be in good academic standing with the foundation. In addition,
    preference is given to those who have not received an internship stipend before.

Scholars are responsible for obtaining their own internships. Please visit your institution’s career center website or office for a list of internship opportunities. Keep an eye on Cooke Connect and Facebook postings for opportunities.
