MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award Helps Students with Unpaid Internships
Each year, MSUFCU awards stipends up to $1,000 each to MSU students that are participating in unpaid internships. MSUFCU knows that great internships are key to students’ college and career successes. The Credit Union is also aware that many internships do not pay for students’ time, but believes these experiences are still valuable to their development as individuals and professionals.
To apply for the award, student's may fill out an online application and complete a personal essay describing their academic and career goals as well as how the internships they are applying for or working at will help them reach their goals. Students are also encouraged to describe how financial considerations may affect their abilities to pursue the internships.
MSUFCU also offers internships to local college students in many different departments as well as at our Financial Innovation and Education Center located across from MSU’s campus in East Lansing. The Credit Union provides hands-on experiences to interns, allowing them to be creative, learn about themselves, and develop skills on the job that will help them to become well-rounded individuals when they graduate and look for their first jobs.
MSUFCU is proud to support students in achieving their dreams of working at their perfect internships through this award.
