Buckley Fellows Funding Application

William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale

Student Fellows Funding Application

The Buckley Program is eager to support its student fellows in their academic and professional endeavors. While we offer on-campus programming as well as paid summer internships at various publications and think tanks, we also recognize that our student fellows may secure other excellent opportunities on their own. We seek to support those pursuits that are in the spirit of our mission. This may include funding for travel to conferences at other universities or educational institutions, undergraduate research, and summer internships.

Guidelines: Given that the Buckley Program’s resources are limited, we regret that we may not be able to fund all requests. We encourage fellows to seek funding from other sources in the University or elsewhere when possible.

Requests for funding will be considered on a rolling basis. Generally, we will respond with a decision within two weeks.

Instructions: To apply, please complete this form and send it to our Executive Director, Lauren Noble, at Lauren@BuckleyProgram.com along with your resume.
