Undergraduate interns are invited to apply based on the following criteria:

- There is a preference for students with financial need
- Students must have daytime schedule flexibility to accommodate a semester’s work activities, and adequate transportation to successfully complete 100-135 hours of work per semester.
Invitations for this award are based on a referral from the director of your internship program. Invitations are sent via email, and a quick appointment is required to confirm the nomination. The Awarded Interns are not classroom aides and should not be requested as classroom assistants. The award invites interns to learn through an experience in informal education, outside of the classroom experience. They can intern in education-related offices, outreach programs, learning centers/programs at the school or district level, museums, evaluation agencies, or other school collaborative projects.
Funding for undergraduate student interns is $1,000. per semester. (Awarded during the current internship semester.)
