We are proud to continue to offer the Feldman Summer Internship Grants, which empower CWRU humanities and social science students to explore their passion and curiosity through an internship experience of their choice.

Two grants of $4,000 each are available this year. To be considered for a Feldman Grant, you must be an undergraduate CWRU student with demonstrated financial need and majoring in the humanities or social sciences. Preference will be given to underrepresented students.

Eligible majors are those associated with CAS departments in the Humanities and Social Sciences, including: Anthropology, Art History, Chinese, Classics, Cognitive Science, Communication Sciences, Dance, English, French, Japanese, German, History, the History & Philosophy of Science, International Studies, Music, Music Education, Philosophy, Political Science, Pre-Architecture, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, Spanish, Theater, Women’s and Gender Studies, and World Literature.


There is one central application for all of the Baker-Nord Center’s Summer Funding Opportunities, including the Humanities@Work Summer Stipends, the Feldman Grants, and the C.H. Cramer Fellowships. Please visit our Summer Funding Application page for complete guidelines and instructions to apply. That page also includes some helpful resources, including budget- and resume-writing tips, what to expect if you win an award, and more information about how the stipends are disbursed.
