Internship Award

CONNIE CALDWELL SUMMER INTERNSHIP AWARD
A generous gift by the deGraffenried Foundation, spearheaded by four Syracuse University alumni, established the Connie Caldwell Summer Internship Award in honor of Syracuse Architecture’s former director of Career Services. The award will assist with living expenses associated with an internship for one full-time architecture student each summer.

DOCUMENTATION OF NEED

Applications for undergraduate scholarships and awards are subject to review by the University’s Financial Aid Office. Since financial need is a selection criterion for nearly all of these awards, applicants must document financial need in one of two ways. U.S. citizens and permanent residents must have a completed FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) on file at the University’s Financial Aid Office.

International students who do not have a FAFSA on file must explain their financial need in a short statement and have documentation available if the selection committee should request it. If you are not sure whether you have a FAFSA on file with the Financial Aid Office, please call 1-800-433-3243 to see if you registered to send a FAFSA to Syracuse University.
