The School of Business Student Internship Fund

What is the Student Internship Fund?

The School of Business Student Internship Fund provides high-quality business learning opportunities to our undergraduate and MBA students by offering grants to help fund students who are participating in a summer internship. The fund has been made possible by a generous donation from Mr. Albert P. Carey, Chief Executive Officer, PepsiCo Americas Beverages, which has motivated additional donors to contribute and grow the fund.

Students granted this award are eligible to receive aid that will be dispersed into their financial aid package the following Fall semester.
