Career & Academic Planning (CAP) is offering a scholarship for undergraduate students working in unpaid internships during the summer to assist with financial expenses. A selection committee made up of Career & Academic Planning staff and faculty at JMU will evaluate the applications. This is a selective process, and students are not guaranteed a scholarship on the basis of applying. Upon completion of the internship, you must complete a reflection paper, including an overview of your responsibilities, what you learned through the experience, and how the internship impacted your career plans. Students will also be asked to serve on internship panels that CAP sponsors in the future, if your schedule allows.
