Overview

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.
