Scholarships & Internships

Students are encouraged to apply to as many scholarships and internships as possible. Our list includes scholarships for active duty, veterans, dependent children, and spouses, plus general scholarships open to everyone. Scholarships eligible for graduate degrees have also been marked.  For information about a specific scholarship or internship opportunity, please contact the organization directly.

Application Tips & Resources

  • Be mindful of deadlines and plan ahead! Internships and scholarships can be very competitive, and vary in their application requirements. Requirements may include a letter of recommendation or transcript, which need to be requested ahead of time. Make sure you get your questions answered ahead of time as well. 
  • Proofread and revise! Have someone look over your personal statement and application ahead of time--make sure you are communicating the message you want the scholarship or internship committee to receive, and express why you are the best candidate for the award or position. 
  • Create a log to help you track information about different scholarships you are applying to, with information such as the requirements, documents needed (official transcript, letter of recommendation, etc.), how to submit it, and submission date. Feel free to this excel template as a guide. 
  • Send thank you notes to professors or individuals who wrote a letter of recommendation or assisted you in your application. Also keep them posted on the outcome of your application, even in the hopefully unlikely event you did not receive the award or position.
