Q. How much is the internship grant and how many winners will there be?
A. One to two (1-2) applicant(s) will receive a $1,000 internship grant.
Q. Do I have to have already secured an internship to apply for the STC Internship Grant?
A. No, you do not have to have an internship lined up when you apply for the grant. We don’t announce winners until May 1, to give applicants enough time to secure an internship before the grant is awarded.
Q. What can I use the grant for?
A. The STC Internship Grant can be used to offset the cost of housing, food, plane tickets or other expenses related to your summer internship. It can also be used as a stipend if you are doing an underpaid/unpaid internship in a city outside of your hometown or state.
Q. Do I have to be interning in a large city to be eligible?
A. Not necessarily. Although priority will be given to applicants interning in cities outside of their hometown or state, or in areas with high costs of living (i.e. New York, San Francisco, LA), it is not a requirement to apply.
Q. If my employer is providing a relocation package, will I be eligible to receive the grant?
