To provide Salem State University students a financial opportunity to pursue career related experiences designed to supplement their educational preparation.

The recipient(s) must accept a career internship (and/or non-paid position) in the position for which the student is being educationally prepared; the recipient(s) application must include a statement of career goals, including how the fellowship will help to meet their career goal and the value of the fellowship as opposed to a paid position, a letter of commitment from the appropriate sponsoring agency outlining the student(s) duties and supervisory relationships must accompany the application; a letter of recommendation from a third party supporting the application must accompany the application; and minimum 3.0 GPA. The recipients will receive a fellowship award which will be paid in three equal installments in July, August and upon the satisfactory completion of the fellowship. The payment plan may be modified by the full vote of the Scholarship Committee to accommodate the financial need of the students.
