The Department of English's High-Impact Internship Award will be awarded again in spring 2021. Application deadline: March 1
Students interested in non-profit, government, advocacy, or social service work greatly benefit from internship experiences in their fields. While these internships are of extraordinary value to the student, to their organizations they serve, and ultimately, to the greater social good, they are often unpaid and in fact, students typically register and pay tuition for the credits they receive.
The High-Impact Student Internship Award will help offset this burden; it will not only recognize student initiative and achievement, it will provide a small economic incentive for students engaging in nonprofit work.
Undergraduate or graduate students in the Department of English at ASU who are completing internships for academic credit (any number of credits) with a high-impact factor internship provider* are eligible to apply. The internship must be unpaid and can have been completed during the summer, fall, or spring of the current academic year.
Award amounts in 2021 will be $1,000 each. It is expected that future awards may be similar.
Students receiving internship credit in the Department of English must submit the following by 11:59 p.m. on Mar. 1, 2021, using the link below:
*See below for examples of high-impact providers.
Note: This is simply a representative list; students are not limited to these internship sites to be eligible for the High-Impact Internship Award.
