USG's INTERNSHIP SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

USG’s Internship Scholarship was developed by USG’s Board of Advisors in response to a critical need to provide financial support for students enrolled in programs at USG, who seek to participate in meaningful, yet unpaid internship opportunities.  Qualifying placement opportunities are made available to students during the fall and spring semesters, and include internships with government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and small "startup" businesses in Montgomery County who provide “practical learning experience” for students.  For more information or to access our online application, link here.
