Request for Internship Proposals



The foundation is interested in funding proposals for support of internships at non-profit (501c3) organizations. The foundation accepts applications annually on the following schedule:

  • Proposals are accepted from June 1 to September 1

  • Applicants are notified of decision by November 1

  • Funds are provided prior to January 1 of the following year.


Grants are for one year, with the opportunity to apply for renewal. 


Smaller organizations interested in starting internships are encouraged to apply.       


The budget must include salary for interns (at least $15/hour and please state if there are benefits). The budget may include salary for employees who manage the internship. Please state the percent time and cost specifically devoted to these duties. Funds for recruiting interns may be included. Capital expenses, if included, need to be carefully justified. Administrative costs not to exceed 10% are allowed. Budgets are generally in the $50,000 / year range not to exceed $100,000. Please use the supplied budget page.


Internships that are a required part of a degree program and for which academic credit is given are not generally funded. Internships which include substantial mentorship and opportunities for skill development are preferred. 

Organizations are highly encouraged to discuss your proposal prior to submitting a full application. Please contact us to discuss the proposal.


Please submit one PDF document with the appropriate materials.
