Funding Opportunities for National Interns


  • Hinckley Washington, DC, Scholarship
    • Washington, DC, interns receive a scholarship of approximately $800/month in addition to subsidized housing. Some internship offices provide additional compensation.

    • EXCEPTION: 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.
