Apply for an Honors sponsored internship

Internships are recognized as an important part of a 21st-century college education. They give students valuable on-the-job experiences with meaningful organizations, they develop skills that future employers will find attractive, and they help you imagine the kind of work you want to do and the impact you want to make in the future. Internships can be life-changing. Particularly if you are prepared! Check out our Internship Preparation Guide

Recognizing the educational value of internships, the Honors College has partnered with several organizations both on and off campus to provide paid (i.e. not for credit) internship opportunities. For up to 166 hours of work with the designated partners below, students are awarded up to $2,500 by the Honors College. It is hoped that the stipend will enable more students to be able to take advantage of the exceptional opportunities that internships offer.
