Overview

The Hinckley Institute sends approximately 150 students each year to the most prestigious organizations on the Wasatch Front. 

Students must register for at least three hours of course credit to participate. HNKLY classes are subject to standard tuition rates.  Students can calculate their tuition costs here.

Internships are available all semesters and open to students of all majors.

Once you are placed in an office, you will work with your supervisor to arrange a work schedule. Most host offices are flexible with scheduling and understand that students are juggling a class and work schedule.  We recommend you arrange your schedule so that you are interning for four-to-six-hours blocks several days per week.
