    Internship Grant

    Internships are rewarding and valuable experiences, but can be difficult to finance all of the necessary expenses, even if it is a paid internship. Undergraduate and graduate students who are declared econ majors can apply for an economics department internship grant and/or the College of FHSS internship grant.  Grants are available depending on financial need, the character of the internship, and the extent to which the internship will aid the student in future academic and career goals.​
