• Career Ready Internship Grant

    Hamline University is one of 33 recipients of the 2015-2018 Career Ready Internship Grant. This grant was developed by the Great Lakes foundation to provide funding to eligible colleges and universities that develop programs to create new paid internship opportunities for students with remaining financial need.

    Hamline’s grant award allows the university to provide compensation to approximately 169 students participating in unpaid internships during the 2016-2018 academic year. Due to limited funds, the application process is competitive. Applications will be reviewed and funding will be awarded based on eligibility criteria, demonstrated need, and type of internship site (funding is to be dispersed among students interning in a variety of nonprofit, for-profit and governmental organizations).

    The Career Ready Internship Grant has concluded as of Spring 2018 and is no longer available.
