Summer Program

Summer Service Projects

The summer service project is an opportunity for Scholars to challenge their service skills and awareness, to reflect on their own understanding of service and partner with a community or organization for eight weeks during any undergraduate summer. During the academic year, Scholars interested in completing a summer service project must attend all of the monthly Summer Project workshops. Scholars submit a written proposal that extensively outlines the objectives of their work. Each Ingram Scholar will have the opportunity to develop at least one summer service project. Scholars will be strongly encouraged to do their first project in the United States, followed by the possibility of doing the second project abroad. The standard stipend for these projects will be $5,000.

Summer Internships

Scholars will also be encouraged to pursue summer internships that fit into their career and service plans.
