Wesleyan Summer Grants

Wesleyan Summer Grants are awarded through the Gordon Career Center to support students who are pursuing no- or low-pay career-related experiences over the summer. Applications open annually at the start of the spring semester and funds are awarded up to $5,000. Funding can be used to cover expenses such as housing, travel, and food. All undergraduate students who are actively enrolled and have not previously received a Wesleyan Summer Grant are eligible to apply.  

We offer grants for a wide-range of summer experiences and student backgrounds; if you’re interested in pursuing a specific opportunity, there is likely a grant that could support you. See the resources below for more information on available grants, eligibility and requirements, and application materials.
