Summer 2022 COVID-19 Updates

While COVID-19 concerns continue, Bryn Mawr College is operating in ways that protect everyone's health and safety while also pursuing the crucial mission of education and research. As with much of the world in the last two years, pandemic related information will continue to change, and we will do our best to keep you updated. You can always reach out to Jennifer or me with questions. Below are the most current details about the 2022 Summer Internship Funding Program.
  • College-funded in person work or remote work is permitted for the summer of 2022.  Please communicate with your organizations to determine the best plan for both you and them.  The following are examples of what is permitted with funding from the Career & Civic Engagement Center Summer Internship Funding Program.  As a reminder internships must meet the minimum of 240 hours to be considered full-time or 120 hours to be part-time across a minimum of 8-10 weeks.  

    • Fully remote internship for the entire summer   

    • Hybrid internship (combination of remote and in-person) 

    • In-person internships (must meet the minimum of 240 hours to be considered full-time or 120 hours to be part-time across 8-10 weeks)

  • Deadlines: For the additional round that opened on Friday, April 29th you must submit your summer funding application with your internship of interest by 11:59 PM EST on May 8. You must submit your summer funding application with your internship of interest by the 11:59 PM April 24 deadline to be considered for summer funding.  Late summer funding applications will not be accepted.  Decisions for funding will only be made for applications that include a completed Organization Verification Form. The deadline to submit the Organization Verification form is April 25 at 11:59 p.m. 

 If you would like to discuss this change further as it relates to your funding application, please contact Jennifer Prudencio at jprudencio@brynmawr.edu to schedule a 1:1 appointment or schedule an appointment in Handshake and select "internship funding" as the appointment type. 

Three shifts in the Internship Funding Program for Summer 2022:

  • For continued flexibility, we will support both part-time and full-time remote and in-person internships:
    • Part-time remote and in-person internships are a minimum of 120 hours over the summer (less than 30 hours, but more than 15 hours per week for a minimum of 8-10 weeks)
    • Full-time remote and in-person internships are a minimum of 240 hours over the summer (30-plus hours a week for a minimum of 8-10 weeks).
  • If you are an international student residing in your home country, we will support remote and in-person internships in your home country. For the purpose of the Summer Internship Funding Program, these are not considered international internships. We will also support remote internships where the work is completed in U.S. for an international organization. Additional international internships will be offered through IES Abroad.  We will not support any self-designed international internships for the summer of 2022. Factors impacting this decision include the unpredictable and changing health conditions and quarantine restrictions around the world; the status of passport and visa processing; the continuation of various travel bans; reduced capacity of many host programs and localities; the U.S. Department of State travel advisories; and the CDC health notices. This decision will not change for summer of 2022.  Please see the Undergraduate Summer Travel Policy here.

We recognize that any policy changes made at the end of the semester may not allow for adjustments to living and travel plans. As a reminder, this policy only pertains to College-sponsored internships. If you are not pursuing funding for your summer internship, you can make your own decisions about whether you do a remote or in-person internship based on your personal situation and the situation in your community.   


Below are some answers to additional questions you might have about summer of 2022. We will continue to add to this section as more questions come up.
