About the Scholarships

Each spring, the B.A. Rudolph Foundation accepts applications for scholarships to help offset expenses while furthering academic and career goals through a summer internship. The internship scholarships will be awarded to those women who best embody the mission and values of the Foundation. They will be socially responsible, progressive, and driven women of high academic and moral caliber. Strong applicants will have previous roles in leadership positions and volunteer organizations. The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is committed to the principle of diversity in all areas. In that spirit, we are particularly dedicated to reaching applicants from a broad spectrum of qualified people. Applicants with diverse backgrounds, experiences, ability and perspectives are encouraged to apply.

Approximately eight to ten scholars are chosen each year, for each of the three internship scholarships. The final number of accepted scholars will be determined by a number of factors, including the number and caliber of applicants, and the Foundation’s budget for the year.
