Internship Funding

Adam Llorens Cbs

A summer internship is a great way to gain real-world experience and build your professional network — but many are unpaid or low-paying and they’re often in cities where the cost of living is very high. The Arts and Letters Summer Internship Program and other grants offered through the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development financially help students defray the cost of travel, rent, and food while completing an internship in any industry or location worldwide.
