Summer Funded Internship Awards!

The NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development is thrilled to announce the launch of the Summer Funded Internship Award! This $1,000 award affords students the opportunity to participate in career exploration and experiential learning through unpaid career-related internships, gives students access to professional networks in the US and abroad, and facilitates the lifelong learning skills associated with solid career development.

This can be a tremendous opportunity for students who want to gain relevant professional experience, but give up valuable learning opportunities due to financial considerations. In order to be considered for the Summer Funded Internship Award, students must:

  • Be enrolled full time in an undergraduate or graduate degree-granting program at NYU and earn at least a 3.0 GPA (students are NOT required to take summer classes to be eligible)
  • Be a member of the Class of 2013, 2014, or 2015
  • Have secured an unpaid internship at a non-profit or other organization that does not traditionally pay its interns (e.g. Arts, Entertainment, Media Related, etc) in the US or abroad. Applicants may not receive college credit for their internship.
  • Intern a minimum of 20 hours a week over 8 weeks during the summer (May 17th – Aug 31st)

The Wasserman Center’s Funded Internship Award is not affiliated with Federal Work Study or financial aid. It is a one-time stipend awarded directly to selected applicants. Applications can be submitted through NYU CareerNet, Job ID#853509.

Instructions are available at http://www.nyu.edu/careerdevelopment/funded_internship.php. If you have any questions regarding the Funded Internship Award, please feel free to email fundedinternshipaward@nyu.edu or contact Tara Schwartz (tara.schwartz@nyu.edu).
