Summer Intern Fellowship

Want to intern, but worried about cost? The CEO facilitates a limited number of competitive need-based summer intern fellowship awards to help offset the cost of summer opportunities!

Khalil Edwards

Pursue Your Dream Internship

The Summer Intern Fellowship is designed to offset the cost of your dream internship. Khalil Edwards '21 spent his summer completing virtual research with MAGIC, Inc, during which he complied data about internet speeds around the Westminster area. 

"I have no doubt that this is a great first try at a real professional role. Especially in the tech world, there is a lot of freedom to self-direct and figure out personal goals. This internship is exactly that, and all the benefits and challenges that come with that model," says Edwards. 

Wilson Clayton, a junior at McDaniel, has conducted summer research at the University of Kentucky Psychology Department in Lexington, Ky.

How to Apply

Students must submit an online application, personal essay, and a resume. We are now accepting applications for summer 2021; please apply by 11:59pm on April 16, 2021.  Please email Rich Goodman (rgoodman@mcdaniel.edu) with any questions about the application. 

To qualify for the Fellowship, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • Be currently enrolled at McDaniel as an undergraduate at the time of the internship.
  • Have an internship already secured or have applied to a specific internship. The award is contingent on securing that internship. 
  • The internship must take place off-campus. Both domestic and international internships may qualify.
  • Preference is given to internships that are unpaid.
  • Be willing to respond to essay prompts reflecting on their experiences at their internships. Failure to contribute posts will disqualify you from remaining award payments.

The Summer Intern Fellowship Program is supported in part by generous gifts from The Rupe-Stuart Internship Award, courtesy of Board of Trustee member Mark Stuart MS ’94 and Timothy Rupe, and The Nora Roberts Foundation.
