Internship Scholarship Opportunity! Apply Today!

Are you looking forward to your Internship in 2018 and in need of financial support? The UTSA Career Center is excited to help!!

Internship experiences provide students with an opportunity to explore interests, develop insight into various career fields, and gain experience to build their skill set. We recognize that experience will be valuable – and that some personal costs incur, even in paid opportunities. These costs may include travel to and from site destinations, housing/accommodations, living expenses, tuition fees for internship course, and/or having an unpaid internship. It is our desire to help brainstorm ways to fund or help support student internships.

In order to support internship experiences, the University Career Center offers a scholarship to qualified UTSA students who are participating in internship experiences outside of San Antonio.  The University Career Center values the opportunity to help students launch their career!
