What are some non-institution-specific scholarships or grants for someone who wants to do primate research this summer?
I asked a question awhile back about summer primate research opportunities and got many helpful answers. I found two internships that I'm incredibly excited about, and I'll be applying to them in the next couple of weeks:
This one, at the Duke Lemur Center: http://lemur.duke.edu/volunteers/2013-internships/
And this one, at Laurie Santos's CapLab (Capuchin Lab) at Yale: http://www.yale.edu/caplab/Main/Summer_Internship.html
Either of these opportunities would be life-changing and would set me on a good path for my future career studying great apes.
The problem is, I know I'm going to struggle to afford the travel and housing. I just don't have time/energy to work on top of school during the semester (and still get the GPA I need), but I would be willing to work part-time this summer if I must. However, I'd rather have a scholarship or grant (or a loan, if necessary) lined up to help me pay for housing and transportation so I can focus 100% on research.
MIT (my home school), as far as I've been able to find, doesn't offer funding to do research at other institutions (except abroad, which this is not).
Can anyone offer ideas for me to pay for this summer?
