The Rohatyn Center is a valuable resource for students seeking financial support for on-campus events, internships, and connections to funding opportunities for undergraduate and postgraduate study and research.

Apply for funding

Students are encouraged to apply for funding to bring a speaker to campus. Proposals will be reviewed as they are submitted.


The Rohatyn Center intern program offers exciting opportunities:

  • Collaborate closely with faculty members on international and global research.
  • Design and implement co-curricular college programming supporting a global focus.
  • Explore different fields of research.
  • Gain leadership experience serving on the Rohatyn Center’s Student Advisory Board.

“Getting to be a part of the academic process while interning at the RCGA has made me a stronger student. Seeing the stages of development that the faculty members here go through when coming up with a research question was fascinating, and really showed me how to approach and break down any problem, no matter how large.”
— Greg Treiman ’19, RCGA Intern


The Rohatyn Center has offered students financial support to conduct overseas research through three grants administered by the Center:

  • The Padma Desai Grants provide funding opportunities for students interested in conducting research or an internship while studying abroad in Russia.
  • The RCGA Study Abroad Research Grant provides funding for research either during a study abroad program or immediately following the program. The program is no longer accepting applications and will be discontinued after AY21-22.
  • The RCGA Summer Research Grant provided funding for overseas research for juniors preparing to write senior theses during the summer before senior year. The program has been discontinued.
