The University Career Center and the Najim Center sponsor a scholarship each year for students completing educational work related experiences. You must have a secured experiential learning opportunity in order to apply. Apply for the 2023 Experiential Learning Scholarship today!
The Texas chapter of the Cooperative Education & Internship Association also sponsors a scholarship for students participating in educational work experiences and all UTSA students are encouraged to apply. Applications are typically released each spring. For more information, visit TxCEIA and review scholarship information under the membership tab.
Another way to explore your career options is to attend a half or full day externship with a company or organization. During these experiences, you will learn more about what it is like to work in that specific setting by meeting with top leaders and participating in projects and/or activities.
