Funding for Unpaid Internships or Externships

The PSM program has some limited funding for tuition reimbursement to help support students who have not been able to find a paid internship opportunity AND who have not yet completed their work requirement for graduation.

Please note:

  • The July 2018 Fellowship funding is available for Summer unpaid internships or unpaid externships only.

  • The December 2018 Fellowship funding is available for Fall unpaid externships only (not internships).

  • You must show the steps you have taken to find a paid internship, be in good standing, and express financial need.

  • It is your responsibility to find a professor, employer, or externship project who will sponsor you for the summer in an unpaid position (Most students work with a professor in a lab or on an Externship project) that meets all of the requirements noted above.

  • Get your internship or externship approved following the steps above PRIOR to applying for funding (The deadline is May 1, 2018 for Summer 2018 internships and May 20, 2018 for Summer 2018 externships, and September 10, 2018 for Fall externships.)

  • You MUST enroll for 1-3 credits in one of the Summer semesters to qualify for tuition reimbursement for the summer fellowship, or enroll in 1-3 credits in the Fall semester Externship program to qualify for the December 2018 Fellowship.
