Wallenberg Foundation Intern Award

Gustavus established the Wallenberg Foundation Intern Award in 2013 when it received a five-year grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The grant was given in order to “establish a regularly offered internship program in Sweden” during the Interim (four weeks) and Summer Session (from four up to ten weeks.)

The Wallenberg Foundation is the largest financier of research in Sweden. The Foundation directs its funding towards research and equipment with natural sciences, technology, and medicine. Wallenberg Auditorium at Gustavus is named in honor of the 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 the student’s ability to pay.
