The MCAN Fellows Program

In 2017, the MCAN Scholars Program officially became the MCAN Fellows Program. This initiative is intended to support internships, research experiences, or other field-based opportunities of eligible applicants 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.

Interested in applying? Visit the Career Center "Fund an Internship" site to find the application form.

Please contact Andrea Kubinski in the Career Center with your Tunnel questions. MCAN Fellows program applications are only accepted via the Tunnel, in order to streamline the application process for students as well as the selection committee.
