Students who accept internships that do not qualify for funding under the Federal Work Study (FWS) program, either because the student does not have federal financial aid eligibility or because the employer and/or the job does not meet federal regulations for FWS eligibility, may apply to the Heinz College Internship Opportunity Fund (IOF) for consideration of awards to help support non-paying and low paying internships. Students are never eligible to receive both IOF and FWS funds to subsidize the same position. Students that actively participate in the fundraising, and that have a demonstrated financial need, will receive preference when the funds are distributed. The IOF is open to students in all programs who do not qualify for FWS or who take a position that does not accept FWS and who have a required summer internship component, regardless of the employer’s sector.
Application Deadline: April 16, 2020, 11:59pm EST.
