Criteria: Open to CEHD students in good standing who are:

  1. CEHD sophomores or above.
  2. Enrolled in an internship, student teaching or field experience course associated with their CEHD major.
  3. Planning an unpaid internship: Unpaid means you are not receiving a salary for your internship work. Small "perks" such as occasional lunches, free tickets, parking privileges, etc., do not count as salary. Modest stipends (less than $100 total) do not count as salary either.
  4. Would experience financial hardship for committing to the number of hours needed for the unpaid internship.

Priority will be given to internships and other practical experiences that fit closely with the major and career objectives of the student. See application form for process of applying.
