November 8, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Hey Hoyas!

Get paid for unpaid internships and other experiential learning opportunities! Through both the Social Impact Internship Program (SIIP) and Penner Family Experiences Award, GU undergraduates may receive financial support for up to $1500 for an experiential learning opportunity, such as an unpaid internship, research, or social action and community-engaged project.

While the SIIP award is exclusively for unpaid internships, the Penner Family Experiences award covers four categories of experiences, including 1) Social Action, 2) Study Abroad, 3) Research, and 4) Unpaid Internships. Only one application is needed to be considered for both SIIP and Penner funding. Applications will be due Monday, November 29 at 9:00am for both opportunities, and students will receive notification 2-4 weeks after the application deadline. View Social Impact Internship Program (SIIP) and Penner Family Experience Award to apply and for more information.
