Summer Experience Stimulus Plan

In response to the disruption that Covid-19 has caused many of our undergraduate students here on the Homewood Campus, the Life Design Lab is offering students three opportunities to redesign your summer experience.

Thanks to the responses from over a thousand of our Homewood undergraduate students, the Life Design Lab has been able to strategize and implement a three-pronged support plan aligned with the greatest needs facing students looking to make the most of the summer ahead.

Design Your Experience Grant

At Life Design Lab, we know that immersive experiences are extremely beneficial and a valuable part of any life design journey. Immersive experiences provide excellent opportunities for students to deepen and gain a wide range of skills, build transformational relationships with individuals working in the field, and make connections between their classroom learnings and practical applications.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it challenging to find a variety of funded opportunities. To support students, we’re offering a Design Your Experience Grant:
Eligibility for the Design Your Experience Grant is as follows:
  • Rising Sophomore, Junior or Senior Student
  • Participating in an unpaid immersive experience e.g. internship, volunteer work, research, short-term or project-based work
  • Special consideration given to Baltimore-area organizations

The deadline to apply is Sunday, May 31, at 11:55 pm.

Summer Experience Grant

Life Design Summer Institute Fellowship

The Life Design Summer Institute provides students with an 8-week course rooted in the principles of design thinking.

Upon completion of the Life Design Summer Institute, participants will be appointed as Life Design Fellows for the 2020-2021 academic year and will have access to exclusive professional development opportunities and resources, including the opportunity to be matched to an alumni for a long-term mentoring relationship.
The deadline to apply is Sunday, May 31, at 11:55 pm.
