If you are an MSU undergraduate participating in an unpaid internship, this program is designed to encourage and support your initiative in finding experiential learning opportunities that help you prepare for your career. Funded by the generosity of the MSUFCU and individual donors, this program is administered through the MSU Career Services Network.
Stipend awards of up to $1,000 each are available to help cover out-of-pocket expenses related to the internship. The number of awards and dollar amounts will be based on available program funds and demonstrated student interest and need. (Many awards will be for less than the maximum $1,000 award.)
Summer 2020 internships must occur during a significant period between May – August, 2020.
