The William Norcross Fund seeks to aid [NUMBER] student(s) during their time spent as an intern at Ursinus College‚Äôs Mental health program.  

It is most important that students get the time to gain experience in the critical field of mental health. The goal of this organization is to provide a stipend that acts as a financial buffer for the intern, allowing them to be present in their critical time learning how to help others. 

How to apply: 

  • Ursinus College students in the sophomore/junior years can apply for summer internships to do independent research. 
  • Proposals should be submitted to the Provost in writing by March of each year. Applicants are encouraged to develop the proposal on their own or seek the help of an instructor to guide them while applying. 
  • Successful students are selected in May and guided to prepare a research paper which will be ready by February of the following year, going into a research journal. 

Students will be paid [$] in the form of a monthly check, which we hope to replace the need for the student to need to take a part-time job during their internship. The money awarded is meant to cover cost-of-living expenses, and hopefully some peace of mind. 

Important: This is not a tuition fees sponsorship/scholarship. It is financial support for students doing collaborative research with faculty with 100% of the money going to the students.
