The internship takes place in New York, NY, starting in early February 2020. The recipient will work 14 hours per week, earning $15 per hour. Sigma Tau Delta will provide an additional $700 stipend to assist with expenses.
The Summer Program Scholarship provides up to $1,500 for the purposes of attending a special summer program, either in the US or abroad, which furthers the applicant’s engagement with Sigma Tau Delta’s mission. Qualifying summer programs must be at least three weeks in length and no longer than three months. Applicants should demonstrate academic scholarship and chapter service and must explain the relevance of their summer program to fostering their engagement with the English discipline, including literature, language, writing, or literacy.
The Study Abroad Scholarship provides up to $3,000 for the purposes of studying for an academic term or year in a certified, undergraduate program outside the country in which the nominating chapter is located. Applicants should demonstrate academic scholarship and chapter service; they also must explain the relevance of their study abroad program and activities to fostering the discipline of English, including literature, language, writing, or literacy.
The Sigma Tau Delta Spring Internship Stipend offers funding for current undergraduate and graduate student members accepting non- or low-paying spring 2020 internships. This is a competitive program providing a limited number of stipends of up to $1,500 each. The internship must involve working for an organization while being directed by a supervisor/mentor within that organization, and the internship’s duties must be consistent with the applicant’s level of education, area of study, and career goals. Financial need will be taken into consideration in addition to internship length. Applicants are responsible for obtaining and providing verification of the internship.
