Get Funding

Students can receive financial and in-kind support for course fieldwork and extracurricular project expenses through the following programs:

For course fieldwork:

Course fieldwork projects requiring local travel qualify for expense reimbursement through the Department hosting the course and/or the Experiential Education Initiative.  To learn more, contact Center for Learning in Action Director Paula Consolini at [email protected]

Students planning Winter Study independent study fieldwork projects can apply for a Roche Fellowship  to cover expenses or if planning a project involving “uncomfortable learning”, apply for a grant from the Gaudino Fund.  Those planning a journalism related project can apply for a Levien Family Winter Study Journalism Fellowship.

For summer internships and fellowships:

Support for students’ summer research involving U.S. public policy (federal, state or local) is available from the Sentinels Fellowship program.

The Alumni Sponsored Internship Program  of the ’68 Center for Career Exploration provides competitive stipends for summer internships.

Finally, the Fellowships Office provides information and help applying for summer and post-grad fellowships offered by Williams and outside institutions.  A wide-ranging list of funding sources organized by subject area can be found here.

For academic year extracurricular projects and programs:

Limited funding is available for programs and projects that are in harmony with the community engagement mission of the Center for Learning in Action which is to engage our broader community in ways that teach us to address underlying inequities, and to build sustainable community partnerships for social justice.
