Funding for Professional Internships

Are you interested in doing a professional internship but worried about covering your living expenses? Good news! The Division of Undergraduate Education, in partnership with UCR Foundation Board Trustee Wally Bakare and Provost Elizabeth Watkins, is offering grants of up to $6000 each to students who secure a professional internship. These grants are being offered through the Funding for Professional Internships Program. Students in all majors are eligible to apply but funding is limited, so apply soon! Applicants must be a UCR undergraduate in good academic standing; have a signed offer letter for a professional internship; and complete a brief application that includes an explanation of the financial barriers to participating in the internship.
