General Information

The State of Utah prohibits universities from giving allocated funds to non-citizens. They can however, receive funds from third parties and privately funded money.


The Career & Internship Center offers unpaid internship scholarships each semester to students receiving credit for their internship. Students who have received an internship scholarship in a past semester may apply for an internship scholarship different from the one received if they are completing a different 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.  Please do not contact us regarding the status of your scholarship. If awarded an Internship Scholarship, your funds will first be applied to any outstanding tuition and fee balances you have on your UVU account. If you have a student loan, the award will go towards paying back a portion of the loan and you will not see the scholarship refund.

Scholarship Deadlines

The completed scholarship application must be submitted online on or before, 11:59 pm on the day of the appropriate semester deadline. Please refer to the deadline dates below. Deadline dates varies depending on scholarship type. Late applications will not be accepted. Refer to the table below for important deadlines for scholarship applications.  Please note that deadline dates will vary per semester depending on scholarship type.  Deadlines for future semesters are generally posted about 4-6 weeks into the current semester.
