The Hinckley Institute sends around 200 students each year to the most prestigious organizations on the Wasatch Front. Internships are available all semesters and open to students of all majors.

  • Students apply to the Hinckley Institute program and are then interviewed by the program director.

  • After you are accepted into the Hinckley internship program, we send your application to the host offices you are interested in.

  • 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-hour blocks several days per week.

  • 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.

    • Graduate, honors and CEL credit available.
