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. 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.

The 2023 application will open Monday, January 30th and close on Tuesday, February 28th at 11:59pm.

Still Figuring Out Your Summer Plans?

You can still apply if you have not secured your summer experience. If chosen for funding, you will have the ability to submit a revised application if your plans have changed and you have a different opportunity than what was in your original application. All revisions will be reviewed before funding is determined.
