Many Scholars intern each year. But for some, the cost of taking a prestigious internship is high. Many internships that offer the best opportunities are unpaid, forcing Scholars to decide between their best option and the need to earn money with a summer job outside of their field.

For these Scholars, the Schreyer Honors College is there to help. With grants of $150 to $1,500, Scholars are able to pay for a portion of their experience—a daily commute, housing in an expensive city, or the increased expenses of interning abroad. Internships are often key to Schreyer Scholars building their resumes and even being offered full time positions after graduation. It enables them to gain experiences in their field and, in many cases, have clear direction regarding their path after college.

Last year, the Schreyer Honors College enabled 43 Scholars to receive funding to help cover the costs of their unpaid internships. This year, we are turning to our alumni, parents, and friends to help more Scholars make ends meet while turning their education into an exciting and rewarding career this summer.
