Candidates are encouraged to apply for internship scholarships, or to enroll in courses that offer course credit through internships. For UMN students, we recommend applying for the CLA Internship Scholarship in the amount of $1500.00 (applications are due September 20, 2017 or January 31, 2018) or to register for course credit through CLA courses ID 1201 Major and Career Exploration, ID 3201 Career Planning, or ID 3208 Internship Reflection. For non-UMN students, we will help research other options. Our grant writing team is ready to assist you. Though 113 cannot provide compensation for interns who do not receive an outside scholarship, interns who perform duties beyond the scope of their assigned responsibilities may be considered for paid contract work on a per-project basis.
