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.)

About this Event
Midwest Design Week (MWDW) aims to celebrate the power of design and diversity with five days of inclusive and engaging virtual events, not just for Midwesterners, but for anyone with a passion for leveraging design for good. MWDW is a collaborative effort, presented by 4 regional chapters of AIGA: Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Toledo.
This year’s theme is Culture. Our world is shaped by culture in its many forms—customary beliefs, shared values, learned behavior, and traditions, to name a few. The culmination of our cultures creates a uniquely diverse experience, which is why for our first-ever virtual design week, we are bringing together the many colorful voices of our communities across our cities so they can share their stories, perspectives, and inspirational body of work.
What comes with this ticket? (free for students)
