Guidance on Qualifying for the Summer Savings Expectation Exemption
Grinnell College seeks to encourage students' experiential and educational opportunities by exempting qualified students receiving need-based financial aid from one summer's earnings contribution for the following educational experiences.
- Grinnell College sponsored summer internships that are tracked through the Career Development Office and successfully completed. Many internships receive Grinnell College funding through one of the following programs; GRINNELLINK, Grant program or Endowed Internships. Please note: your summer internship can only be tracked through the CDO if you are enrolled the spring semester prior to that summer and the following fall semester.
- Summer research of at least (8) weeks at Grinnell College.
Lists of eligible students will be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Aid by the offices of Career Development and the Registrar. All paperwork and deadlines specific to the internship or research is the responsibility of the student. Students do not need to complete any additional paperwork for consideration of the exemption.
