Dietrich College Internship Opportunity Grants

Applications accepted on a rolling basis from July 1 through June 30.

The Dietrich College Summer Internship Opportunity Grants Program makes it more possible for students to take advantage of less remunerative but worthwhile summer internship opportunities. The goal of the program is to minimize or eliminate any out-of-pocket costs to students who receive and accept an offer from such an internship sponsor, and particularly for students who would not be able to participate in a low- or unpaid summer internship without this support. Grants of up to $2,000 per internship are available.

Open to currently enrolled undergraduate Dietrich College students, BHA students and SHS students with a Dietrich College primary major.
