Wallenberg Foundation Intern Award

The Wallenberg Foundation Intern Award provides financial support that enables Gustavus students to complete an internship in Sweden during our Interim (January Term) or Summer Session. Gustavus pays for the airfare, ground transportation, housing, food, and medical insurance necessary for the Award recipient to complete an internship in Sweden at a site of the student's choice, up to pre-set limits for each expense category. Award recipients will also receive a stipend of $350 per week for every week that they work at their internships.Gustavus is able to provide this financial support to its students because of a five-year grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

The purpose of the Wallenberg Foundation Intern Award is to enable Gustavus students to benefit from the educational enhancement, personal growth, and career and professional development that result from the completion of an international internship, regardless of their ability to pay.
