Funding Opportunities for Local Interns


SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Students doing a local internship are invited to apply for the following. Because these scholarships are limited in number, students must apply for them. Interns will receive the scholarship funds after the internship has been completed. 

IMPORTANT:  Interns who have already graduated from the University of Utah are NOT eligible for scholarship funding. We accordingly recommend students interested in interning at the end of their senior year, defer graduation one semester so that they can qualify for scholarship funding. 

DEADLINES: Mid-semester of internship. Program Coordinator will send more information about deadline to those participating in the program.
