Get credit and scholarships

As an intern you not only have the opportunity to acquire on-the-job training and experience, but you may also qualify to receive UVU course credit if the experience meets certain criteria. A few scholarships are available to help supplement internship-related costs. This funding is usually awarded to students performing unpaid internships, but scholarships may also be awarded to students who are performing out-of-state or even international internships, regardless of whether the experience is paid.

Benefits of an internship

Internships are a great way to gain experience in your field of study while also receiving college credit. An internship is a pre-professional career experience with specific learning goals designed to help students acquire real-world practice and job-related skills. Internships may be full time or part time, paid or unpaid positions, and generally last between three and six months.
