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) with 10 days of the deadline. (Many awards will be for less than the maximum $1,000 award.)

The Engineering Exchange is an engagement fair that encourages networking between students, alumni, and recruiting professionals that will open the door to co-op, intern, and full-time opportunities. The benefit that a formalized engineering co-op or professional internship has on engineering undergraduate students is deep, as it provides exposure to real-world engineering industries, develops upon business communication and documentation skills, and creates an understanding and appreciating to engineering far beyond the textbook.
To effectively prepare for this event, connect with the virtual resources that The Center offers, schedule practice interviews through employers (Handshake) or Interview Stream, attend Employer Partner Sessions in August and September, participate in workshops, and, simply, partake in some quality networking events taking place digitally throughout the summer and fall terms!
