When do I apply to the Field Experience Program?
Winter Quarter: Round One
Summer 2013 internship opportunities brokered by the CCPD will include K-Internships, Community-Building Internships, and Arcus Center for Social Justice Internships. These three types of internships will go live in K-Connect on Friday, January 11, 2013 (Week 1), and will be open to current first-year, sophomore, and junior students. The summer 2013 Discovery Externship opportunities, with an increased weekly stipend of $70/week, will also go live on Friday, January 11, 2013, and will be open to current first-year and sophomore students.
- Students may apply for up to TWO funded opportunities (Externship, K-Internship, Community Building Internship, Arcus Center Internship) through the CCPD during winter quarter's first round. (If not selected for an opportunity during round one, students may apply for additional opportunities during spring quarter's round two.)
- Students will receive a maximum of ONE offer. A student who applies for and is offered one of these opportunities is expected to accept the offer. Students should therefore only apply for opportunities that they would accept if offered.
- Students may participate in ONE funded opportunity through the CCPD per summer. Once a student is offered an opportunity he/she is no longer eligible for additional funding from the CCPD during that summer. For example, a student who is offered a K-Internship during winter quarter is not eligible to apply for independent internship funding during spring quarter.
Applicants will be selected and confirmed by the end of winter quarter. The application process, sliding scale, and disbursement of grants will be coordinated through the CCPD; all questions and inquiries should be directed to email@example.com.

As part of the Field Experience Program, and funded according to the same sliding scale, students also have the opportunity to seek and secure their own internships (what the CCPD calls Independent Internships). To apply for a stipend for an unpaid independent internship, a student submits the 2013 FEP Grant Proposal [link to http://surveys.myinterfase.com/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=l63Im9l3] by the Friday of third week, spring quarter. Grantees will be selected and confirmed by the Friday of seventh week, spring quarter. The application process, sliding scale, and disbursement of grants will be coordinated through the CCPD; all questions and inquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
