MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award Empowers Students to Pursue Valuable Unpaid Internships
Since 2012, MSUFCU has awarded stipends of up to $1,000 each to MSU students engaging in unpaid internships that support their career and professional growth. The Credit Union recognizes that impactful internships are an important resume builder and can be a vital step toward a lasting career. Because many internships do not provide compensation, MSUFCU acknowledges the barrier this can create for students and strives to ensure these professional opportunities are accessible.
To be considered for this award, students must complete an online application with a personal essay that showcases their academic and career goals. Students should also highlight the potential impact of the desired internship on their goals and the effect that financial limitations may have on their decision to accept or work at the internship. Internship fields can include non-profit organizations, the arts, music, government, public relations, and more.
MSUFCU is proud to offer a variety of internships throughout several Credit Union departments as well as at our Financial Education and Innovation Center located on Grand River in East Lansing across from MSU’s campus. Internships with the Credit Union offer a fast-paced and fun environment in which students will learn a diverse set of skills to prepare them for employment after graduation. MSUFCU Interns are able to build their own path and pursue projects that best highlight their interests and career goals. For more information, click here.
MSUFCU is excited to see where the next generation of students go as they pursue their career, and we are happy to support students in making their dream internships a reality with this award.
