EVANSTON, Ill. --- The Alumnae of Northwestern University has selected 18 students to receive grants to fund 2019 summer internships. The Summer Internship Grant Program (SIGP) provides undergraduate students a $3,000 stipend for completing an unpaid summer internship, while simultaneously participating in a professional development program offered by Northwestern Career Advancement (NCA). The Alumnae has been a staunch supporter of the SIGP program since 2010.
NCA serves as the program administrator, with financial support coming from The Alumnae of Northwestern University, other generous alumni donors, and the President and Provost offices. SIGP applicant numbers have soared since the program’s first year, when grants were awarded to 10 students out of 90 applicants. In 2019, more than 800 students applied for grants to support summer internships; almost 400 were awarded. The Alumnae’s 18 recipients were selected from a pool of 58 high quality applications.
