SMPA Career Access Network Internship Fund Application Form
SMPA Career Access Network Internship Fund
Looking for extra funding to support an unpaid summer internship? Apply now to receive funding from the SMPA Career Access Network (SMPA CAN).
The fund permits SMPA students to pursue enriching summer internship experiences that they otherwise might not be able to afford. Applications are judged based on merit, professional promise and need.
If you know you are receiving incidental financial support for your internship, such as funding for housing, transportation and/or meals, that does not automatically disqualify you from applying for additional funds. Please be sure to mention any such support in your application.
Funds can be applied to a summer internship experience that has already been accepted or one that has been applied to but not yet accepted.
You can print your full unofficial transcript from GWeb and scan it, or print it to a .pdf and submit that. It must be your full unofficial transcript, not just the current semester.
Each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis and evaluated against the student's financial need, demonstration of the internship’s connection to career and academic goals and the quality of the internship. Winners will be selected by the internship coordinator for SMPA along with the director and associate director of SMPA.
The award will be treated as taxable income for federal and state income tax purposes. Students should consult their parents or a tax advisor for federal and state income tax filing questions.
