Undergraduate Internships

Under its Opportunity Through Collaboration Program, DePauw provides matching internship stipends to support students in summer, fall or spring semester, and Winter Term (January) internships at Indiana start-up, small-, and mid-sized firms in the five sectors targeted by the state for leading economic development: life science and bio-technology, advanced logistics, advanced manufacturing, information technology, and capital development.

Internship hosts must provide stipends of at least $250 per month and offer students an internship with both supervised work responsibilities and educational and reflective experiences that are equivalent to those of an entry-level position. DePauw will provide a stipend sufficient to ensure a total stipend of at least $1000 per month.
