Internship Credit

Many students are able to get major credit through their departments. Check with your department to see if internship credit is available.

Internship credit is also available through AS-190, a variable credit internship course run by Richard Watts at the college level. This course allows any intern to get elective credit for their internship. During the summer, internship credit is still available under course number AS-190, but is taken online so that internships can be done anywhere in the world!

Internship Funding

Funding is available for summer internships only.

CAS Internship Scholarship

Scholarships up to $3,000 for students in the College of Arts and Sciences to cover travel and living expenses while they work at an unpaid or underpaid internship.
