Students should check with their supervisor for specific due dates and details.

Is there a budget incentive for departments to participate in the Intern2Learn program?

Yes, 75% of the Intern2Learn wages are paid from a University account, up to 225 hours/semester. The hiring department pays the remaining 25% of Intern2Learn wages.
