The American Bar Foundation sponsors an annual program of summer research fellowships to interest undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds in pursuing graduate study in the social sciences. The summer program is designed to introduce students to the rewards and demands of a research-oriented career in the field of law and social science. The program is supported in part by the Kenneth F. and Harle G. Montgomery Foundation, AT&T, the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates, and the Law School Admissions Council.
ESPN and the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) are accepting applications for the newly created Stuart Scott internship at ESPN.

Funding Resources for Denison Students
The Horizon Fund
–The Horizon Fund was established in 2009 by 161 members of the Denison Class of 1959 as they celebrated their 50th anniversary reunion. The Fund is a permanent endowment to help support important opportunities for students. It is not the intent of the Horizon fund to provide grants that cover expenses associated with Denison coursework or senior projects but rather to support enrichment opportunities for the academic and/or co-curricular interests of students.
