Yawkey: Information for Students

The Yawkey Foundations’ gift to Boston University is the first permanent fund supporting student internships and focuses on unpaid internships at nonprofit organizations. The program is designed primarily for sophomores, with juniors also eligible to apply.

In addition to providing a living allowance stipend, the program is designed to enhance recipients’ learning experiences through program components such as the development of a learning agreement and, upon the internship’s conclusion, the writing of a reflective essay.

Internships may be completed during the fall or spring semester of sophomore year, during the summer following sophomore year, or during the fall or spring semester of junior year.

Applicants for funding must already have secured a qualified internship. Recipients will receive a stipend of $2,000 for fall or spring semester internships and $4,000 for summer internships.
