Program Description:
William & Mary Freeman Fellowship

Program Description

A generous grant from the Freeman Foundation has made it possible for up to 24 William & Mary undergraduates to conduct unpaid internships in Asia since the summer of 2018.  The purpose of this program is to provide students with a range of professional opportunities in structured, real-world settings that will allow them to clarify their career goals, enhance their career preparation, and develop their cultural competencies.

This program is administered by the Reves Center for International Studies, working in partnership with the Program in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies [AMES] and the Program in Asian and Pacific Islander-American Studies [APIA].

Fellowship Dates
Summer 2024: The duration of the internship must be a minimum of eight full-time weeks. The exact timing depends on the fellowship recipient’s personal schedules and the availability of their host organizations.

Applications due: December 1st, 2023 

Selected students may be invited to interview. The award letters for the 2024 Freeman Intern Fellows will be sent out by January 31, 2024.

• The Freeman Intern Fellowship is open to full-time, degree-seeking undergraduates who are in good standing with the university. Graduating students and those planning to transfer to another institution are not eligible to apply. 
• Students from all academic fields of study are encouraged to apply. 
• Non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply; however, based on the requirements of the grant, this funding cannot be used for students returning to their country of origin. 
• The fellowship cannot be used to fund study abroad programs or self-funded internships, nor can it be used to pay third-party study abroad or internship providers. 
• Students who have previously received a Freeman Intern Fellowship are not eligible to apply for a second award. 

Fellowship Grant Funding
Each Freeman Intern Fellow receives at least $5,000 to help offset a significant portion of their travel and living expenses, although it may not cover all of these costs.
