Established by Colette Mull and Michael Dreyer, parents of Alex Mull-Dreyer ‘18, the Gerald and Ivy Mull Internship Grant supports students wishing to participate in unpaid or low-paying internships focused on progressive causes. Created in loving memory of Alex's grandparents, the Grant commemorates their dedication to social justice and underserved populations worldwide. Grants are available in amounts up to $3,000.
You and your chosen internship must meet the same requirements listed for the Career Development Summer Internship Grant. Internships that support progressive causes and public policy, social justice, aid to developing countries or helping professions focused on underserved populations are relevant experiences for this grant.
To apply for a Gerald and Ivy Mull Internship Grant, first identify and apply for an internship that meets the requirements referenced above. The Center for Career Development can help guide you through an internship search. Once you are offered the internship or are in the interview process, you may apply for the grant. The application process includes submitting a common application, your résumé, a prospective budget, and a description of the internship. Prior to submitting your application, you may wish to have a career adviser review your application materials during walk-in hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.) to make sure that they are in the best possible shape.
Two information sessions will be offered during Common Hour (11:05 a.m.-12:05 p.m.).
