Tom Joslin Internship Award

The Tom Joslin Internship Award was established in memory of faculty member and documentary film maker Tom Joslin, who taught at Hampshire from 1977 to 1980. This award supports students doing internships in film, video, television, screenwriting, and digital performance art.

Funding Amount

Grants range from $200-$1,000, depending on financial need and availability of funding.

Eligibility

IMPORTANT: Students with high financial need doing internships with Hampshire alums, please apply ASAP. If your ability to do the internship is contingent upon funding, we will do our best to notify you early.

In order to be considered for either grant, you must:

1. Be a current Hampshire student in good academic and disciplinary standing.
2. Be returning to Hampshire upon completion of the internship (graduating students and students taking a non-academic leave are not eligible).
3. Have a letter from an internship supervisor verifying that you have been offered an eligible internship.

Priority will be given to students who are doing eligible internships with Hampshire alums through the Creative Media Internship Program, and who can demonstrate financial need; however, students doing other internships will also be considered.

Application

Please download and complete the application packet, and submit it in one envelope to the Career Options Resource Center, or by email to Sharón Friedner: sfriedner@hampshire.edu.
