The B.A. Rudolph Foundation champions the educational and professional development of women for whom a small amount of support could make a significant difference.
The B.A. Rudolph Foundation offers scholarships for women seeking unpaid internships in public service and the sciences, as well as a mentorship program and networking opportunities.
The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is committed to the principle of diversity in all areas. In that spirit, we are particularly dedicated to reaching and supporting a broad spectrum of qualified women who have diverse backgrounds, experiences, ability and perspectives.
The Graduate Public Service Scholarship supports female graduate students who are applying to or have secured an unpaid internship in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Internships in Maryland and Virginia qualify, as long as they are near Washington, D.C. Applicants must be current graduate students (Masters, PhD, Juris Doctorate, etc.) or have recently completed their degree (graduated no more than 10 months from the application deadline). There is no requirement regarding the applicant’s focus of study, as long as the internship focus requirements are met. We anticipate accepting four applicants each year as scholarship recipients, or “scholars.” This number may be adjusted according to the volume of applications received.
Scholarship applications are due by:
- March 28 for graduate public service applicants
- April 4 for STEM applicants
- April 11 for undergraduate public service applicants
The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is committed to the principles of diversity and equity. In that spirit, they are particularly dedicated to reaching applicants from a broad spectrum of qualified people. Applicants with diverse backgrounds, experiences, ability and perspectives are encouraged to apply.
