DC Gator Club Summer 2021 Scholarship Opportunity

Summer 2021 – The DC Gator Club is opening its application process to award four Internship Scholarships of $1,000 each for University of Florida students with internships based in the greater Washington, DC area (DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia) for Summer 2021. This scholarship is made possible by DC Gator Club general funds.

Undergraduate and graduate students interning for an organization based in the greater DC area (DC, Maryland, Northern Virginia), in-person OR virtual, are welcome to apply. The internship does not need to be for credit. There will be a voluntary section where the applicant can communicate financial need if they wish. NOTE: Students with virtual internships are only eligible for the scholarship if the internship would have taken place in the DC area if not for the COVID-19 pandemic.

If a student is not enrolled in classes and not interning for credit (instead, doing a non-credit internship), the tuition scholarship would apply to their next eligible semester. All applicants must be completing an internship with an organization based in the greater DC area in Summer 2021 to be eligible for the scholarship.

For purposes of this scholarship, an internship is defined as a short-term work experience offered by companies and other organizations for people to gain exposure to a particular industry or field. The DC Gator Club recognizes fellowships as also meeting these criteria.

Scholarship applications will be reviewed by the D.C. Gator Club Scholarship Committee and four recipients will be selected for a $1,000 scholarship.

APPLICATION OPENS: June 15, 2021

APPLICATION CLOSES: July 2, 2021, at 11:59 PM EST

AFTER SUBMITTING THE APPLICATION FORM, please send your unofficial transcript to scholarships@dcgators.com.

After receiving the scholarship, the selected scholarship recipients will be asked, but not required, to submit a video clip or picture/caption sharing their experiences while interning in the Washington, DC area and participate in a DC Gator virtual event recognizing the recipient (to be determined).
