CBD may be able to help you!

Are you working with a Hampshire College faculty member this summer? Students in placements at Hampshire College and/or with Hampshire College faculty may be eligible for an additional stipend of up to $1500.

How to Apply for Funding:

Find and secure an internship or lab/ field research assistantship placement:

  • Contact the professor, researcher, or program for which you would like to work, and apply for a placement.
  • Your placement can be with an accredited researcher or recognized non-profit anywhere in the world. You find it, secure a placement, and we may help fund it!

Consider your funding needs:

  • CBD funding can cover up to $3,000 reimbursement toward travel and commuting costs, rent, some utilities, and placement-related research expenses.
  • CBD funding cannot cover food and meal costs or stipends for those working at placements outside of Hampshire College.
  • CBD cannot cover tuition or airfare for Hampshire College short-term field courses or for outside credit-granting summer programs

Take a look at the guidelines for CBD funding:

  • Are you in good academic standing?
  • Do your research goals for your placement involve engaging and better understanding connections across the studies of culture, mind/brain, and human growth and development?
  • Will the work you do at your placement engage two of the three components of the study of culture, mind/brain, and human development?
  • If you answered “yes” to these questions, CBD funding may be for you!
