KACIF Summer 2020 Applications Now Open through May 4th

The Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund (KACIF) Summer 2020 application has opened and now closes on Monday, May 4th.  The deadline was extended from April 15 to May 4 for the regular summer application period this year to give students some more time to finalize their internship plans for the summer.

Facilitated by the university’s Career Services Council and funded through the generous support of alumni, parents, and other donors, KACIF provides grants ranging from $750 to $1,500 to GW undergraduate and graduate students pursuing domestic internships that are necessarily unpaid. As such, students who will be interning in domestic necessarily-unpaid internships, typically with non-profit, NGO and government agencies, in the Summer of 2020 are encouraged to apply for funding up to $1,500.

Interested students can go to the KACIF website at http://go.gwu.edu/internfund to review more information, including eligibility requirements and application instructions. Applications will be accepted through May 4, 2020.

You are invited to watch this clip of past KACIF recipients thanking donors and talking about their experiences with their internships.
