Funding Opportunities for Local Interns


  • Degree seeking student at the U

  • Student must participate in a local internship and be registered for HNKLY credit

  • Must be a U.S. citizen, lawfully present in the U.S., or have graduated from a Utah high school.

  • Cumulative 3.0 GPA

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 to defer graduation for one semester so that they can qualify for scholarship funding. Scholarship amounts range from $500-$1,000 depending on the application and need assessment. 

DEADLINES: The Hinckley Program Coordinator will send more information about deadlines to those participating in the program. Scholarship funds will be released two weeks after the start of the semester.
