The Baker-Nord Center and the Office of Post-Graduate Planning & Experiential Education have teamed up to offer summer stipends to support undergraduate humanities majors who receive an outside offer to work at an unpaid internship. The stipends are designed to enable students from all economic backgrounds to spend their summer working in a meaningful role with the organization or employer of their choice.




  • To be eligible, you must be a CWRU undergraduate humanities major.
  • For Summer 2020, the scholarships will be awarded in $500 increments, up to $3,000.
  • The application deadline is Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
  • Prior recipients, please note: Each student may apply for up to 2 summers, OR 1 summer + 2 semesters of funding, but never to exceed $5,000 in total Humanities@Work funding.
  • This $5,000 limit does not apply to Feldman and Cramer recipients, nor to awards from other centers on campus, such as the CAS Experiential Learning Fellowships, the Wellman-Hill, the Reisacher, etc. Here is a more comprehensive list of humanities summer funding opportunities.


Beginning in 2020, 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.
