Internship Scholarship Program

The Internship Scholarship Program provides unrestricted awards of up to $3,000 for summer scholarships. The Summer 2021 application period is from January 11-March 26, 2021.

The 2021 Internship Scholarship Program application is now closed. Applications are being reviewed throughout the month of April.

The Internship Scholarship Program (ISP), offered by the Office of Career and Professional Development (OCPD), provides scholarships for career-related summer internships. Beginning in Summer 2019, the OCPD has provided unrestricted awards of up to $3,000 to offset the cost of professional internships that provide minimal or no compensation.

Students are eligible if:

  • They are a sophomore, junior, or senior with at least 30 credit hours completed and are in good standing with the University.
  • They plan to complete and have secured a summer internship that is at least six weeks in length and a minimum of 240 hours.
  • Their internship is off-campus and meets NACE internship guidelines.
  • They have not received an ISP award previously.

Applications will include the following:

  • A copy of your résumé
  • One (1) Letter of Recommendation
  • An estimated budget of how scholarship money would be used; click here for a sample budget spreadsheet
  • WINGS Financial Aid award information (screenshots are allowed)
