University Career Services (UCS) will be accepting applications for financial assistance from students who have secured summer 2013 internships. Both the Parents Committee Internship Grants and the Larry Simpson Internship Scholarship provide funds to assist students in achieving their career-related goals.

The Parents Committee Internship Grants (PCIG) are merit-based and current 2nd and 3rd year students of all majors are eligible. Applicants must have secured an unpaid summer internship in an area of public service (i.e., civic engagement and public policy; economic and business development; education, both K-12 and lifelong learning; environment, both planned and natural; and health). This year we are pleased to offer grants of $3,000 each to 16 students! Grant recipients write a journal throughout the internship process, and via the University Career Services’ website, their experiences will be shared with the U.Va. community. The application deadline for the grants is noon Monday, April 1, 2013.

In addition to the grants, UCS coordinates the Larry Simpson Internship Scholarship. This scholarship is a $2,000 need and merit-based award available to a rising 4th year in the College of Arts and Sciences who has secured a summer internship in any career field.  This scholarship is generously sponsored by Betty Shotton, CLAS ’74 and honors Larry Simpson who served as the first director of U.Va.’s career services office from 1968-1998. The application deadline for the scholarship is noon Monday, April 8, 2013.
