Experiential Learning Fund
Sponsored by the POSCIR External Advisory Board

The purpose of the UD POSCIR Experiential Learning Fund is to provide current students opportunities to participate in hands-on learning—through internships, academic research, real-world research in the private or public sector, and/or firsthand interactions with experts and the community. Such experience helps students understand the field in which they hope to work as well as improves their chances of later securing fulfilling employment.​

The Fund will provide $2,500 stipends to a minimum of two students each year to participate in an experiential learning experience.

All undergraduates with at least sophomore standing who major in either Political Science or International Relations are eligible to apply for this stipend. Graduating seniors in their final semester are not eligible to apply. The internship or supervised research activity proposed must be directly relevant to the student's major. All eligible applicants are encouraged to apply. Awards will be made to applicants with the strongest credentials and whose proposed project is anticipated to make the greatest contribution to future student success. Preference will be granted to ap​plicants proposing unpaid internships.

To apply, students should submit the following:

  • A letter (up to 300 words) describing the internship or research opportunity and explaining the benefits the student hopes to derive from it.
  • A forwarded letter or email confirming the offer of the internship or research opportunity
  • Resume
  • Unofficial transcript
  • Letter of recommendation from a UD faculty member

​Submit all materials in an email to AWARD-SUBMISSIONS@udel.edu. List “Experiential Learning Stipend" as the subject line. Deadline: November 1 for a winter or spring term project and April 1 for a summer or fall project.
