More background on the Fred L. Emerson Foundation International Internship Scholarship

The Emerson International Internship Scholarship was established in 1996 at Hartwick College to enable Hartwick Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors to expand their postgraduate career options through international internships. The Emerson International Internship Scholarship provides grants ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 for students from any major to pursue their interests in an international setting. These internships bear academic credit and can be proposed as an extension of an existing Hartwick course, a research grant, or an individual internship.


The Foundation was incorporated by the late Fred L. Emerson, president of Dunn & McCarthy, Inc., an Auburn, NY manufacturer of women's shoes. The Foundation makes grants primarily in Auburn, Cayuga County, and upstate NY.
