Global Internship Scholarship

Students who participate in the Hinckley Global Internship program are eligible to apply for the Hinckley Global Internship Scholarship. The scholarship awards range from $500-$3,000 and are awarded during the semester in which a student completes their internship. The amount of the scholarship will vary based on the country, internship costs, and financial need. Additional factors such as number of applicants and prior academic record will also be considered. Scholarships are available to students who secure a Hinckley global internship or set up their own global internship and have it approved by the Hinckley Institute.

Students should understand the costs associated with an international internship and budget accordingly. We recommend that students access this Global Internship Calculator to help develop a realistic budget. Students should check the particular countries currency exchange rate to get a realistic view of expenses.

IMPORTANT: Students who graduate from the University of Utah are eligible to complete a Hinckley internship during the semester following graduation if they register for credit, but they 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.
