VCU Internship Funding Program

VCU Internship Funding Program

Will you be participating in an internship this summer that is unpaid or doesn't pay enough to cover your expenses?  Don't let your funding needs cause you to miss out on opportunities for personal and professional development. Apply for funding for your summer experience through the 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 applications are now closed. Stay tuned for details about Summer 2024!

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

Questions? Contact VCU Career Services at, and visit our drop-in hours (Tues-Fri, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Commons).
