Internship Grant Programs
Current 2nd and 3rd year students are eligible to apply for grants to support unpaid summer internships typically not available during the academic year or accessible without the funding. Funding is available through topical programs in prairie studies, global development, business, gender and women's studies, international relations, applied technology, world population control, writing, religious leadership, environmental studies, arts & museum administration, Chinese studies and conflict resolution.
These programs are very competitive and look for clarity in presentation, support from sponsoring agencies, well-defined responsibilities, originality, and uniqueness of opportunity.
