VCU Internship Funding Program

Want to participate in an internship that is unpaid or doesn't pay enough to cover your expenses for the summer? Don't let your funding needs cause you to miss out on opportunities for personal and professional development. Apply for funding through the brand new VCU Internship Funding Program!

Funding will be awarded as a direct deposit and can be used to supplement costs for travel to your internship, housing, childcare, professional attire, supplies and more!

Summer 2023 application information coming soon!

Complete and eligible student applications will go through a competitive selection process that includes multiple rounds of review by a committee of approximately 30 faculty and staff from both campuses. Funding is not guaranteed to all applicants, but we are hoping to support as many students as possible in this pilot year. Awardees will be notified by mid-April and payments will be dispersed in early May.
