Please read carefully.

No late or incomplete applications will be considered for a Funded Internship Award. NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED VIA EMAIL. 

It is recommended that students submit all application materials early so that if you need assistance or have any questions, you are able to contact Penny Loretto the week you return from Spring Break. Due to the large number of application submissions, it is highly unlikely that students will be able to schedule an appointment the week of March 24 in time to prepare for the Funded Internship deadline. Career Coaches are available during drop-in hours to review resumes. 

Projects undertaken in countries assigned a
Travel Warning by the U.S. Department of State are not eligible for these awards.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
