Many public interest organizations and government agencies lack funding for student workers. As a result, students often work on a volunteer basis, or seek alternative funding arrangements. Below are some options for obtaining Summer funding. Many summer fellowships are tied to specific agencies, although a few will allow you to apply funding to an unaffiliated public interest or government job that meets certain requirements. Deadlines, vary so it is important to get started early!
