Summer Internship Grant


The Summer Internship Grant has been established by the Career Center to assist traditional undergraduate students experiencing financial hardship with paying for tuition for summer internship courses.

Potential reasons for awarding grant funding include, but are not limited to:

  • Financial need or inability to afford tuition of summer internship course.
  • Participation in unpaid internships.

You are eligible to apply for the grant without regard to financial need. However, priority will be given to applicants with demonstrated financial hardship and/or participation in an unpaid internship.

Additional priority will be given to students completing a required internship course as part of their major.
