The Gerald Lee Wilson ‘58 and Virginia S. Wilson Internship Fund has been endowed to assist Davidson students pursuing summer internships that are consistent with their career interests. The fund, provided through the Center for Career Development, offers up to $5,000 each summer.
You and your chosen internship must meet the same requirements listed for the Career Development Summer Internship Grant, with priority given to students demonstrating financial need.
To apply for a Wilson Internship Fund 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.).
Application deadlines and award notifications/distributions are scheduled as follows.
If selected for a grant, recipients agree to:
Acceptance of a Golden Family Internship Grant is, in turn, acceptance of the Davidson Honor Code. If any infractions are suspected, the student risks forfeiture of part or all of the award, and Honor Code charges.
