DC Gator Club’s J. Richard Sewell Internship Scholarship Applications Open

Undergraduate and graduate students interning for an organization based in the greater DC area (DC, Maryland, Northern Virginia) for the Spring 2021 semester, in-person OR virtual, are welcome to apply. The internship does not need to be for credit. There will be a voluntary section where the applicant can communicate financial need if they wish.


If a student is not enrolled in classes and not interning for credit (instead, doing a non-credit internship), the tuition scholarship would apply to their next eligible semester. All applicants must be completing an internship with an organization based in the greater DC in Spring 2021 to be eligible for this scholarship.


For purposes of this scholarship, an internship is defined as a short-term work experience offered by companies and other organizations for people to gain exposure to a particular industry or field. The DC Gator Club recognizes fellowships as also meeting these criteria.


Scholarship applications will be reviewed by the D.C. Gator Club Scholarship Review Committee and one recipient will be selected for the $1,500 scholarship.
