Programs: KINSC Summer Stipend

In order to support external research and academically-oriented service projects, the KINSC funds summer stipends, which were established to strengthen and maintain relationships with institutions outside Haverford nationally and internationally. This stipend program complements existing opportunities for summer research for students in faculty science labs at Haverford.

The KINSC summer stipends provide financial support for students who are able to secure unpaid off-campus laboratory research or public policy internships that have a significant natural science component. The KINSC is particularly interested in supporting summer internships that build upon the student's learning from previous coursework or mentored research, and that will enhance opportunities for learning and scholarly research in the future. Applications require a detailed project proposal written by the student and a letter of support from the prospective off-campus research or internship mentor, as well as from a Haverford faculty member. Applications for summer stipends are reviewed by the KINSC Steering Committee.
