Freeman Internship Funding

The Freeman Foundation was established in 1994 with the objective of promoting cultural understanding between the United States and the countries of East and Southeast Asia. Earlham has been awarded a grant from the Freeman Foundation to provide access to internships that meet this criterion.

Freeman Internships are highly competitive and limited in number. If selected for one of the eligible experiences, funding up to a maximum of $7500 may be awarded. If granted Freeman funding through Connect 1-2-3, $4,350 will go to program fees that go to our third-party partner.

To qualify for Freeman funding students must...

  • meet all CCE internship eligibility requirements
  • be U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  • be enrolled at Earlham college at the time of application, spring semester before internship, and fall semester following the internship
  • have regular internet access in order to participate in required orientation activities prior to and after

If on an off-campus study during the Spring semester before the internship, please consider whether you will be able to participate in the required, online activities.
