The May and Samuel Rudin Memorial Internship Scholarship is a stipend of up to $1,000. It is intended partially to free students from outside job commitments for the semester in which they are registered for a CAS internship.
- Selections are based on academic merit, merit of the proposed internship, and financial need.
- The scholarship is available only to CAS students who are the recipients of need-based financial aid. Applicants must have a FAFSA on file at the student financial aid office in order to be considered. This helps the committee to determine the unmet financial need of each student.
- Applicants should have at least a 3.0 grade point average.
- Letters of recommendation are required from students’ internship and faculty supervisors.
- Students must register for the appropriate independent study and internship course and complete the College of Arts and Science course permission form.
- Internships must be taken within the 12 point independent study limit, and are usually 4 points.
- Preference will be given to internship placements in the downtown area south of 14th Street.
- Internships must contain substantive academic content through some combination of journals, regular meetings with the sponsoring professor, reading assignments, and full-length term papers.
- Specific questions about internships should be directed to the intern supervisor in your major department.
How to Apply:
- Complete the online application.
- Upload a description of your internship project. Please explain a) how the internship is related to your career goals; b) the specific capacity in which you will work with your supervisor.

- Your internship supervisor must submit a detailed letter of recommendation describing your participation/involvement in the internship.
