Focus Indiana Scholarship

Internship Scholarship Program

Internships are work-related learning experiences that provide students with the chance to gain important knowledge and skills in a career related that may or may not be directly related to their academic study. An internship provides exposure to career fields of interest without making a permanent commitment. Employers are encouraged to place their internship opportunities on Sycamore Career Link -for free- where students can search for the best internships.

These $1000 scholarships support targeted internship experiences that will develop students’ understanding of themselves and a meaningful career path, provide employers with capable interns, contribute to economic development and promote employment of ISU graduates in Indiana.

Internships must be overseen by an instructor and can be for credit or non-credit. It is the responsibility of the student to locate a site for the internship and find an instructor willing to be their sponsor for the internship. Career Center staff is willing to assist the student locating both.
