The Freeman Foundation was established in 1994 with the objective of promoting cultural understanding between the United States and the countries of East and Southeast Asia. Earlham has been awarded a grant from the Freeman Foundation to provide access to internships that meet this criterion.
Freeman Internships are highly competitive, limited in number, and offered through a third-party provider. If selected for this program the award amount will cover the cost of the partner’s placement fee while also providing funding for transportation and other essential expenses.
To qualify for Freeman funding, you must:
- meet all CCE internship eligibility requirements.
- be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident*
- be enrolled at Earlham college at the time of application, during the spring semester before the internship, and during the fall semester following the internship.
have completed any ONE of these three courses by the time the internship begins:
- EPIC 171 EPIC Foundations (0 or 1 cr.);
- EPIC 126 Bonner Scholars (0 cr.), open only to Bonner Scholars; or
- ACEN 146 LIFT: College and Career Connections, open only to students in the LIFT program (1 cr.)
*Note that we may be able to award funding to some international students. However, the Freeman Foundation requires us to prioritize U.S. citizens and permanent residents. In addition, international students may not receive funding to intern in their home country or a country with a similar culture or related language.
