Funding: Texas Career Engagement Internship Fund

Deadline: June 1, 2022; Open Until Filled

UT Austin students have access to funding that supports participation in unpaid internships during spring and summer 2022.

When applying for internships there are many things you might consider, including your income needs. Texas Career Engagement created the Internship Fund to help reduce the financial barriers to internship participation. Through financial support, we aim to increase access to internships for all UT Austin students.

Students with financial need who are participating in unpaid internships are encouraged to apply for the TCE Internship Fund.

Through this Texas Career Engagement grant, students receive funding of $20 per hour up to a maximum amount of $4,000 based on internship hours completed between the first and last class day of the semester or term. Selected students will receive funds in two disbursements: the first after the application has been accepted and the second in the last weeks of the internship. The internship host-employer is required to submit a confirmation of the intern’s hours in order for the second payment to be disbursed. The amount of the funding may be recalculated based on the final total hours completed at the internship.

The amount of this fund is limited; therefore, not all applicants will be selected to receive funding.
