Internship Funding

Through generous donors and grants, Hiram College offers students funding for unpaid or low paid internships. A list of available internship funding is below. After all internships, the award recipient’s supervisor/employer will be asked to complete an evaluation of the student’s performance. The announcement for funding applications will typically go out to students in early March, and the application deadline is towards the end of March.
