Pre-Professional Experience Internship Grants

Up to $1500 Fall or Spring
Up to $3000 Summer

Pre-Professional Experience Internship Grants are designed to assist students serving in pre-professional apprenticeships outside the classroom—in the community or other locales, or on campus—in some function or service which bears upon the academic or professional goals of the student. These grants are awarded on the basis of evidenced potential for a productive internship. Faculty interest and involvement along with a well-articulated and specific proposal also pertain. A good scholastic record is not a sufficient qualification by itself. While internships are useful to those students considering graduate study, they are also valuable for the advancement of a student's competency in a subject area. Faculty willingness to work with and be responsible to and for the intern is essential. If the person with whom the student is working is not an IU faculty member, as frequently is the case, the student will need to have two (2) letters of recommendation: one from the individual who will actually supervise the internship, and one from a faculty member from the student's department.

To apply for a Pre-Professional Experience Internship Grant, obtain an application at here.

Please Note: All applicants must attach an unofficial IUB transcript to this application.

All applicants who are leaving Bloomington for their activities must also complete and attach either a domestic or foreign travel waiver to their application.

**NOTE**: If you filed the FAFSA and are receiving financial aid (for example: Direct Loans, Pell Promise grants, 21st Century Scholars Covenant), and you receive one of the Hutton Honors College's grants or scholarships, your award from the Hutton Honors College may not be paid-out in the form of cash funds (i.e., as money paid into your Bursar account), but instead, may be used by IU's Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) to reduce your student/parent loan burden or reduce your federal/state grant by the amount awarded to you by the HHC. To learn how your HHC award may impact your financial aid, please contact OSFA at
