Pay It Forward

When you donate to the Hinckley Institute, you help provide students with life-changing internships. These internship scholarships give deserving, exemplary students access to transformative, professional experiences that shape their career trajectories. These experiences have become increasingly critical and impactful in preparing students for the workforce. Your donation, no matter the size, will make a direct impact in the lives of our students.

You can give back to the Hinckley Institute by making an online contribution today.

The Hinckley Institute of Politics has opened doors to successful careers in the public and private sectors for more than 7,500 former interns and scholarship winners. Without your generosity we would not be able to continue providing these opportunities.

Your contribution has a direct impact on student’s lives:

Aila Amer, Local Intern    “I was honored to be one of the recipients of a Hinckley Institute Scholarship. Thanks to their generous support, I was able to complete my education and do two local internships, with both the Salt Lake City Mayor’s Office and the Utah office of then Senator Orrin Hatch. I am a first generation college student, and growing up in a less-privileged culture helped me realize the value of a college education and the importance of internship experiences.”

Gabe Moreno, National Intern    “My experience as a Hinckley Intern in Washington D.C. was transformative. During my time at the National Park Service interning as a communication specialist, I’ve had the opportunity to expand my network, gain new skills and add real-life experience to my resume. Being a Hinckley intern has provided me with a competitive edge and I feel confident heading into a career in the field of strategic communication and social impact. I feel immense gratitude towards the Hinckley Institute and those supporting it. I would not have been able to take full advantage of this opportunity without the generous scholarship provided by the Hinckley.”

Blake Hrubes, Global Intern    “As a Hinckley Global intern, I was fortunate to have worked for the Southern Institute of Social Sciences in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This opportunity allowed me to develop not only professionally, but personally. This experience could not have been possible without the Hinckley scholarship.    My internship allowed me to develop my skill set, network and confidence. These newly developed strengths enabled me to strive for opportunities that I never thought would be possible. I am now back in Southeast Asia, working for the United Nations. I get to work with people from all over the world while promoting sustainable development goals. Without the Hinckley institute, their professional, educational, and the financial support from scholarships, I would not be where I am today.”
