Did you know you can receive up to $6,000 to pursue an internship?

The Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) is committed to helping all K students participate in internships so they can gain experience and successfully transition into careers post-graduation. To alleviate the financial burden on students participating in unpaid internships, the CCPD provides a limited number of internship stipends to students pursuing an unpaid internship. The amount a student receives is based on their financial need level but they can apply to receive an internship stipend of up to $6,000.

Stipend applications open in early winter term however a requirement of the application is the student must first secure an unpaid internship. One benefit of a longer winter break is it is a great time for students to find and secure an internship opportunity so they are ready to apply once the stipend application opens. The CCPD is open during winter break and students can meet with career coaches both in person or virtually to get assistance with finding internship opportunities, updating their resumes, or preparing for an interview.
