MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award - Spring 2021

Funded by the generosity of the MSUFCU and individual donors, the MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award provides stipend awards of up to $1,000 each to help cover out-of-pocket expenses related to an unpaid internship. The number of awards will be based on available program funds and demonstrated student interest and need. Contingent awards are available for students who have not accepted an internship offer by the application deadline, but internships must be secured (confirmed) within 10 days of the deadline. (Many awards will be for less than the maximum $1,000 award.) Awards are available for U.S. based internships only (remote internships and micro-internships are eligible for consideration).

Application deadline is Tuesday, January 19 at 11:59pm
