BA Rudolph Foundation Graduate Public Service Scholarship

Application Deadline:  March 15, 2017

The BA Rudolph Foundation Graduate Public Service Scholarship supports female graduate students who are applying to or have secured an unpaid internship in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area (including Maryland and Virginia). Applicants must be current graduate students (Masters, PhD, Juris Doctorate, etc.) or have recently completed their degree (graduated no more than 10 months from the application deadline). There is no requirement regarding the applicant’s focus of study, as long as the internship focus requirements are met.

Internships must be centered on government, public service, non-profit endeavors, and/or women’s rights. The intention of the scholarship is to cover the cost of living and some travel expenses for those who otherwise would not be able to afford such an opportunity and applicants must therefore demonstrate financial need.

The financial award consists of $1,500 per month (4 weeks) for the length of the individual’s internship, and will be calculated for each accepted scholar individually. Each scholar is assigned at least one mentor to lend guidance on entering and navigating her profession and Washington, and the Foundation will informally connect the scholar with others that we feel would be useful contacts outside for networking within her chosen profession or interest.
