Summer Internship Grant Program

The Hubbard Center Summer Internship Grant Program is one of DePauw’s trademark programs to help students prepare for their future. The program provides partial support for students for unpaid internships that are secured in non-profit, government, and start-up environments (locally, nationally, or internationally). Internships supported by this competitive program will provide a learning experience that connects full-time summer work to individual academic and professional goals. Selected students will receive living wage grants to help support them for the summer during the internship.
