Internships are a key to professional success upon graduation. Internship awards provide students with funding to help offset the cost of pursuing unpaid or low-paid internships.

The internship award application for summer 2024 opens March 11 and closes April 28 at 11:59 p.m.

Confirmation of the internship will be required before the award is provided. The award money will be applied into your UNL student account. If you have an outstanding balance at UNL the money will automatically deduct from your UNL bill. If you do not have a balance with UNL, then the award will be refunded to you as either a check or direct deposit to the account linked to your MyRed.
