Dates & Deadlines

Deadline to apply: May 31, 2021
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Agencies may interview at anytime during the process so you should not wait until the deadline to apply.
This program is designed to help Robert T. Kenney Scholars gain meaningful professional work experience, while giving local nonprofit agencies the extra assistance of a talented college student for the summer. Agencies apply to the American Savings Foundation for funding for these internships through a competitive proposal process. Those selected receive a small grant to fund a paid summer internship for a current Robert T. Kenney scholar.
These positions are funded for an hourly wage of $14.50 per hour for 35 hours a week for a total of 9 weeks. Start and end dates may be flexible, but applicants must be available to fulfill the total of 315 hours. The hiring agency will be responsible for all screening, interviewing, and selection of candidates, and will have control over all hiring, training, payroll, and supervisory responsibilities regarding the intern. Decisions about internships will not have any impact on any renewal scholarship application award decisions, which are made later in the summer.
If you have any questions about the paid summer internship program, contact Heather Hokunson at (860) 612-4291 or email@example.com.
Below are the positions available for Summer 2021. Scholars are able to apply through an online application portal.
Note: Only students who received a Robert T. Kenney Scholarship during the 2020-2021 academic year may apply. Students must be entering their junior year or above in Fall 2021 and cannot have held a previous position through this program.
