The Reed College Fellowships & Awards Committe oversees a number of programs that provide the funding for you to pursue the summer or post-graudate project of your dreams.

Winter Externship Program

Reed Winter Externships take place in January of every year and offer you the opportunity to get an in-depth look at a specific career during the break between semesters. Applications are due during the fall semester.

Internship Advantage Initiative

Internship Advantage opportunities are 8- and 10-week paid summer experiences that are offered in partnership with the Center for Life Beyond Reed.

Volunteering: Students for Education, Empowerment, and Direct Service (SEEDS)
