What are stipends?/Am I eligible to apply?
Stipend awards (taxable) help current students take non-paid off-campus opportunities related to their career (internship, volunteer, off campus research, student teaching and practicum) that they would not have otherwise been able to afford. The stipends are competitive, with approximately 30% of students selected to receive an award
When is the deadline to apply?
Summer/Fall Internship Deadline is late March and Spring Internship Deadline is late October
How do I apply?
Submit your application by the deadline (please note applications are looked at after the deadline and late applications are not accepted. Make sure you start the process at least a few days before to ensure you avoid any potential issues in advance. If you have system issues you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE the deadline and describe the issue and include screenshots to show what the issue was. We will then reach out to the system manager to investigate)
What does the application encompass?
Once in the application you will be asked to complete some questions about you/academic profile, submit your resume and to submit responses to the following questions:
How much are the awards?
Financial awards are typically $1,800 and are taxable (Medicare/Social Security is also withheld). If you have expenses or circumstances that require you to receive a higher stipend, you will have a chance to describe your situation.
How can I make my application standout?
Winners are determined by their resume and essay responses. Summer applicants being considered for the Magner Stipend will also be interviewed.
