About the Programs:
The Second Decade Society Internship Grant
The Second Decade Society (SDS) is the alumni leadership development program for the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences. These alumni are proven leaders in their careers, and are committed to helping Hopkins students succeed in their career aspirations. Thanks to the efforts of the SDS, several grants of up to $5000 each are available to students for summer internships. Internships must be unpaid or sponsored by a nonprofit organization. Internships must be a minimum of eight weeks, and students are expected to develop their own internships.
Funding is typically based on the duration of the internship. It is pro-rated by week. If you have a 12 week internship, your funding is $3000, 11 weeks is $2750, and 10 weeks is $2500. However, to provide additional students with grants, the alumni committee may slightly alter the amount of the award based upon student need expressed during the interview process. If you are eligible, you will also receive $2000 credited directly towards your required “summer savings” contribution in your financial aid package. To be eligible for that credit, you must receive need-based Hopkins grant aid as part of your financial aid package.
SDS Eligibility: Full-time, freshmen, sophomores, and juniors enrolled in the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences. Priority will be given to exceptional candidates currently receiving need-based grant aid from Student Financial Services.

Through the generosity of alumnus Charles Robins, Johns Hopkins University offers funding for selected students to gain business-related or economic development-related experience through summer internships in East, Southeast, or South Asia. The experience can be in private industry, or it can be in a government or nonprofit setting as long as the position is focused on business/economic development, finance, accounting, marketing or management.
Funding is based on the duration of the internship. It is pro-rated by week. If you are participating in a 12 week internship you will get the full $5000, if you have an 11 week internship you will get approximately $4750, and for a 10 week internship you will get approximately $4500. This funding must cover all summer expenses including travel.
