Pat Rosenzweig Fellows Internship Fund

The 2019 program cycle has concluded. Thank you to all that applied! Applications for the 2020 cycle will open at the beginning of Winter Quarter 2020.

In Memory of Pat Rosenzweig

Pat Rosenzweig, AB'61, was a dedicated UChicago alumna and a tireless advocate for students. After retiring from a highly successful career, Pat volunteered as an adviser with Career Advancement's Fried Public Policy and Service Program, where she mentored countless students and guided them to fulfilling careers in the public sector. As a testament to her commitment to UChicago students, Pat bequeathed a gift to support a new program that would fund internship opportunities for students interested in public policy and service. The program has been named the Pat Rosenzweig Fellows Internship Fund in her honor.

About the Program

The Pat Rosenzweig Fellows Internship Fund provides grants to support undergraduate students who have secured unpaid summer internships with non-profit and policy organizations.


Currently enrolled students from all class years and majors are eligible to apply. To qualify, a student must have secured an unpaid summer internship at an organization that aims to make a positive impact on the world through social service or public policy. The internship can be in a broad range of fields, including non-profits, policy research, local and federal government, and economic development. Internships that provide direct, hands-on experience—especially in working with the immediate community the organization serves—are highly recommended.

*Important note: students must be activated for on-campus recruiting in order to apply. To get activated, make an appointment to have your resume reviewed by a Career Advancement adviser and sign the on-campus recruiting policy agreement. If you are seeing the error message “Additional special criteria have been set by your career center. Please contact them for more information” when you view the program listing on UChicago Handshake, then you have not been activated.

Award Amount

Pat Rosenzweig Fellowship Grant recipients will be awarded $4,000. For students who are accepted, a single stipend will be distributed prior to the start of the internship.

To Apply

Interested students should submit their application through UChicago Handshake. Applicants will need to submit:

  • A resume
  • Proof of their secured internship (offer letter or e-mail from the organization)
  • An application survey form
