The Career Services Council is happy to announce the Summer 2015 Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund (KACIF)!

The Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund was initiated by the Career Services Council to provide financial support to GW students who have substantive internships that are necessarily unpaid. Necessarily unpaid internships are typically those with non-profit, governmental, educational, and non-governmental organizations that genuinely lack the financial resources to pay salaries or wages to their interns. The program is funded by generous donations made by alumni, parents and Board of Trustees members, and the grants will range from $1,000 to $3,000.

  • The Early Decision Application period for Summer 2015 commenced on February 15, 2015, and closes March 1, 2015. Early Decision applications, a new initiative this semester, will be reviewed by the Career Services Council, and recipients will be notified on April 15, 2015.
  • The General Application period begins March 1, 2015, and closes April 1, 2015.  General applications will be reviewed by the Career Services Council, and recipients will be notified on May 15, 2015.
  • Initiated by the university’s Career Services Council and funded through the generous support of alumni, parents and members of the Board of Trustees, KACIF provides grants ranging up to $3,000 to GW undergraduate and graduate students pursuing internships that are necessarily unpaid.
  •  The Fund is open to all current matriculating GW students in good standing from all schools – both undergraduate and graduate students.
