Department of Labor Unpaid Internships Information

Please ensure that any unpaid opportunity within your organization meets the Fair Labor Standards Act criteria for an internship before proceeding. 

Funding Opportunity

Even if your organization lacks the resources to offer an intern a paid position, a student could potentially receive funding from Whitman to intern for you, provided the opportunity meets certain requirements and the student submits a strong application. Whitman Internship Grants are available during the fall and spring semesters and the summer.
