Harrop and Ruth Freeman Fellowship
Application Deadline: April 16, 2021
If you are a Cornell freshman, sophomore, or junior interested in a summer internship related to peace studies and conflict resolution, please apply for the Freeman Fellowship to support work at a not-for-profit organization.
Please note that the deadline for these fellowships has been extended to April 16, 2021. Due to the continued uncertainty given Covid-19, this extension allows students more time to secure a summer internship.
The Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies will award one or more Freeman Fellowships to encourage Cornell undergraduates to pursue summer work related to peace studies and conflict resolution in an otherwise unpaid position with a not-for-profit organization.
Current Cornell freshmen, sophomores, and juniors interested in funding for their summer internship can apply. Normally students seeking to fulfill the internship requirement of the Global Health Program are not eligible unless their projects explicitly engage peace and conflict.
A stipend of $1,200 per month for up to two months.
