Most ASE Mentors- about 60%- fund internships with support from their own organizations. However, some research institutions, small start-ups or nonprofits, are challenged to provide the full $3,500 fee.
ASE is happy to provide letters of collaboration or support for grant proposals and supplemental requests. If you would like us to provide a letter, please send us the name of the funding organization, your grant title, a brief description of your grant proposal, the number of interns for which you are requesting funding and the funding level (total dollar amount). It is helpful to request the letter at least two weeks in advance of the grant deadline.
