Summer Funding and Reimbursement for Job Search Expenses

Funding for Summer Positions

Financial support for students accepting unpaid summer positions is available, but limited.

  • In most cases a student must accept the summer position before an application for funding can be submitted.
  • Students receive information early in spring term outlining the application process.
  • Funding is available through federal work study support and financial awards from the Office of Career Strategy and the Mary Natkin Fund.
  • Funding for positions in environmental law is available separately through the A. Paul Knight Memorial Fellowship; Professor Murchison coordinates the application and award process.

Information about the application process is provided early in spring term.

Reimbursement for Public Sector & Judicial Clerkship Job Search Expenses

Students who have incurred expenses during initial and call-back interviews with public sector employers, and those who have interviewed for a post-grad judicial clerkship, may apply for reimbursement.

  • Applications for reimbursement of public sector and judicial clerkship job search expenses must be submitted to OCS within 30 days of when the expenses incurred.
  • Visit the SCORE Resources Library for the full policy and the required reimbursement form.
