Block Career Center Advisors can help you explore funding options for internships that would otherwise be unpaid. These options include Tufts-specific programs like Tisch Summer Fellows, as well as other funding opportunities available through external organizations.
Leah K. Horowitz Memorial Fund
Funds are given in memory of Friedman School alumna, Leah K. Horowitz, N06, to recognize those who embody her commitment to addressing complex problems in the food system in ways that empower individuals and communities. Many students who receive funding do fieldwork during their internships (domestic and international). This is a yearly gift.
Tisch Summer Fellows (TSF)
The TSF program offers substantive internships that allow students to gain real-world skills, grow their networks, and explore career paths while building stronger communities on a local, national, or international level. TSF fellowships are available for undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students.
Virginia and Dr. Elie J. Baghdady Fund for Maternal and Child Nutrition
This mission of the fund is to help malnourished children and mothers throughout the world by supporting the development of humanitarians skilled in international nutrition interventions and policies. The fund extends support to master’s degree students who are in need of financial support to take an internship opportunity that is based in a developing country and is related to maternal and child malnutrition and/or hunger. A developing country is one with a low or lower-middle income economy. This is an endowed fund and supports one student annually.
