Summer Grant Opportunities for Marlboro Students: Deadline February 28, 2020 at NOON
- International Experience Grants: International Experience grants are awarded to Marlboro students who wish to pursue opportunities abroad. These experiences could range from overseas classes, conducting independent research or undertaking an internship abroad. For questions, please contact Maggie Patari
- Summer Internship Grants: Marlboro provides support for summer internships to enable students to take volunteer or low-paid positions in organizations and gain applied experience in their academic fields. Our hope is that students will engage in work that cannot be done on campus and that they will establish relationships with professionals who may be helpful to them in the future. Students in the past have interned in non-profit organizations, research centers, laboratories, art studios, cultural festivals, hospitals, correctional facilities and museums. Students have also received support for their own independent, Plan-related research project, guided by a Marlboro College faculty member or a mentor at another institution. Grants are made only to support Plan-related summer internships or projects. The Prizes & Scholarships Committee administers summer internship grants. For questions, please contact Maggie Patari.
- Environmental Internship grants: Marlboro has received funds to support student work on the environment. These funds offer opportunities for research support at all levels and from all disciplines, and for student attendance at conferences or workshops relating to environmental topics. In addition, the grant will support summer internships or field work relating to the environment. A group of faculty in Environmental Studies administers the environmental grants. For questions, please contact Maggie Patari.
- Summer Language Grants: Summer Language Grants are awarded to continuing Marlboro students to pursue language study off-campus during the summer break. The goal of the summer language grants is to give students a means by which they can develop skills in languages they have been studying at the college or continuing or new study of a language that is not taught at Marlboro. The language study should be integrated into the academic program of the student, and intensive immersion programs are recommended. The Language Committee administers summer language grants. For questions, please contact Maggie Patari.
- The Arthur D. Butler Fund was created to "provide support to juniors and seniors whose Plan of Concentration includes the study of poverty and social policy, preferably in the U.S., or abroad"; Grant funds are to be used for research and expenses related to the recipient’s Plan, such as books, supplies, travel costs and similar expenses. These grants are intended to support student work, in contrast to the Aron grants which are for student and faculty collaborative work. The Prizes & Scholarships Committee administers Butler grants. Contact: Maggie Patari.
- The Town Meeting Scholarship Fund awards grants to students to pursue activities that serve the college's mission. Grants are typically $100-$600 and no student may be awarded more than $1000 in a single academic year. There are typically two deadlines per semester and for unforeseen time-sensitive needs a Reserve Fund is available, to be used at the discretion of the Selectboard. See Article X of the by-laws for more details. Contact: TMSF Committee. Apply Online

Aron Fund was created to celebrate "the close collaboration between Marlboro students and faculty by awarding annual grants to support research, fieldwork and/or the acquisition of materials used for collaborative study.
