Denison Internship Program Stipend Funding
The Denison Internship Program Stipend is a resource to assist students who are participating in an unpaid or low-paid summer internship as part of the Denison Internship Program. The goal of the stipend is to help defray the cost of taking an unpaid or low-paid internship that will enhance your career exploration and preparation. Stipends may not entirely cover the cost of taking an unpaid internship but are in place to lower financial barriers associated with internship participation. Stipend funding can range in amounts based on a student’s financial need level as determined by the Office of Financial Aid, but all students are eligible to apply. Some examples of expenses include, but are not limited to housing, travel and transportation, food and professional attire. Learn more about the Denison Internships Program and application timelines.
