Funding Opportunities

James ’75 and Mary Ajello Internship Fund

The James ’75 and Mary Ajello Internship Fund awards recipients up to $5,000. It encourages students to undertake internship opportunities by offsetting a variety of costs like housing, food, tuition and program fees, transportation and airfare, and by providing a living stipend.

Award winners must be registered in a credit-bearing internship (e.g. POLS 297) to receive the funds.

Jay Jacobs Fund for Experiential Learning

The Jay Jacobs ’77 Fund for Experiential Learning awards a few hundred dollars per recipient in a credit-bearing internship, study abroad, or field experience like Model UN or the New Hampshire Presidential Primary trip. They will provide monetary assistance to offset a variety of costs that may discourage students from taking these opportunities.

Award winners must be registered in a credit-bearing study abroad program, internship (e.g. POLS 297), or a course to receive the funds.
