Blatt Internship Funding

The application for Summer 2018 internship funding is closed for the academic year! Check back in Fall 2018 to see when next year’s application will open. 

The Lawrence M. Blatt Biotechnology Internship Fund provides supplemental funding for life science majors in the College of Arts + Sciences at IU-Bloomington completing an internship at a life science company or institution. Students are eligible to receive funding as long as their internship is with a life science company or an employer that has a life science focus. The internship is not required to have a strict scientific focus. There are no geographic restrictions. Open to undergrad and masters students to help defray the cost of travel and housing during an internship.

To be considered, complete the online application in its entirety when it opens in the fall.  Students must include a copy of their official internship offer when submitting their application. A committee will review all applications and selected students will receive funding through their bursar account.  If selected, the Walter Center will work with any student with a financial aid package, to make sure the awarded scholarship does not negatively impact a student’s current aid package. 

Should you have questions at any time, Staci McFall, Associate Director, Employer Relations, at sgmcfall@indiana.edu.  

FOR EMPLOYERS

Life Science employers interested in hosting interns should contact Staci McFall, Associate Director, Employer Relations at sgmcfall@indiana.edu. The Walter Center for Career Achievement would be happy to help employers create an internship program.  The Blatt Internship Fund may be particularly helpful to employers that have not traditionally hosted interns because of a lack of funding.
