Financing Your Summer Experience

We understand that financing a four-week summer program experience can be challenging. Summer Programs will work with all institutions on securing outside funding for students when available. We encourage all students to contact their financial aid or summer internship office at their home institution and ask about the options for applying for aid. Non-Hampshire students should be advised that the four-week summer programs are the equivalent of 4.00 credit hours.

Summer Programs has compiled a list of outside funding opportunities that students should explore, and we will continue to update this list:

Scholarship Searches

We encourage students to register for free searches. There is no need to pay for these services. Do not provide any personal information you are uncomfortable giving. Do not provide your Social Security or driver's license numbers on the web.

National Organizations

Students have used grants from the following organizations to help fund their summer program experience at Hampshire:

Please contact Summer Programs at summer@hampshire.edu or by calling 413.559.6843 with any questions. We also encourage current Hampshire students to contact our financial aid office with any financial-aid specific questions at financialaid@hampshire.edu or 413.559.5484, or by visiting the office on the second floor of the R.W. Kern Center.
