Emory Edge Stipends
increase opportunities for students to engage in pathways for experiential, co-curricular learning (internships, study abroad, research
) while also providing a framework for deeper reflection. Edge Stipends are designed to increase accessibility by offsetting living expenses (such as housing, food, transportation, and incidentals) in the summer term.
Undergraduate students* who have taken the Liberal Arts Edge
course recently and who propose a qualified summer co-curricular opportunity (internship, study abroad, research).
*Students who are eligible will have received direct email notification indicating that they are eligible.
: May 1st
Stipend amounts range from $1,000 to $6,000, depending on demonstrated financial aid, location, and budget.
Students are required to enroll in a course for academic credit during the relevant summer term. The academic component of these experiences provides a framework for periodic reflection. Students who receive financial aid may also be eligible for a financial aid grant to cover a portion of tuition costs. PLEASE NOTE: In addition to the Edge Stipend- students should also apply directly to the program of choice (study abroad, research internships). Both applications can be in progress concurrently.
Estimated Budget for Summer Stipend:
- Students must submit an estimated budget for the Edge Stipend application based on the guidelines below:
- Study Abroad: Budget sheets are available for each program (http://studyabroad.emory.edu)
- Global Internships: Budget sheets are available for each program (http://college.emory.edu/oisp/internships/global)
- Internships (secured directly by student) or Research Programs: On average (for the Atlanta-area), the estimated living expenses are approximately $610 per week. These estimates are based on Emory's Cost of Attendance.
- Financial Aid Status: Students do not need to submit a financial aid award letter. The Edge Stipend process includes collaboration with Office of Financial Aid to review existing financial aid status. If students are not currently eligible for financial aid, they are still eligible to apply for an Edge Stipend.
- Other Sources of Funding: If you are receiving other scholarships and/or paid stipends, you must include the amounts in your budget.
