The MCAN Fellows Program

The Multicultural Alumni Network (MCAN) Fellows Program (formerly MCAN Scholars) has been helping multicultural Carleton students pursue experiential learning opportunities since 2007. The MCAN Fellows program provides financial support for students undertaking internships, research experiences, or other field-based opportunities in fields that offer no compensation or compensation lower than the pro-rated equivalent of entry-level salary. The intent is to award successful applicants with supplemental grants sufficient to cover expenses and, to the extent possible, lost earnings necessary for any required portion of tuition and other costs needed to attend Carleton the coming academic year.

Carleton College gratefully acknowledges the genuine interest and generous support of the Multicultural Alumni Network in establishing this grant program for students of color. Eligibility is limited to students of color holding sophomore or junior class standing, as certified by the College Registrar.
