Although sometimes difficult for busy students to fit into their schedules, internships offer a unique opportunity to apply academics in a professional setting and get the experience employers are looking for before completion of a degree program. In addition, internships are often unpaid or in fact paid for by the student in the form of college tuition. The College of General Studies Summer Internship Scholarship addresses the need to alleviate the financial burden and time constraints of an unpaid internship for motivated students.
Up to five scholarships will be awarded for the summer 2023 semester to cover the tuition and fees of a three-credit internship.
1) be registered for 3 internship credits (LCJS, CGS, NPHS, or PUBSRV 1900)
2) be enrolled in a CGS bachelor's degree program
3) not be eligible for tuition remission
4) demonstrate financial need and have a FAFSA on file with the University
5) demonstrate good academic standing (2.5 minimum cumulative GPA)
