Internship Scholarships

Internship Services offers several types of scholarships each semester to students receiving credit for their internship. Students may apply for more than one type of Internship Scholarship during the same semester, as long as they meet the minimum eligibility requirements (see each application for details). Students who have received an internship scholarship in a past semester may apply for a internship scholarship different from the one received if they are completing another separate internship.

Awards & Distributions

Recipients are awarded funds based on their internship scholarship proposal, internship applicability to major, academic progress, and career focus. Final determinations will not be made until the deadline for the scholarship has passed. Once awarded, scholarship money cannot be released until all internship paperwork is completed and turned in to the appropriate department.
