The Student Government Association has partnered with the University Career Center and President's Promise, who currently run the Bright Futures scholarship program for students with summer internships, to create the Transportation Reimbursement for Academic Internship Needs (TRAIN) scholarship

The TRAIN Scholarship will be available to students that are pursuing internships as part of a requirement for their major in order to graduate. Additional requirements include: the internships must be completely unpaid and not with for-profit companies. Students may only apply for this scholarship once, and they must be enrolled in the internship course that corresponds with the required internship course for their college. 

The scholarship will be available in the Fall and Spring semesters, as the University Career Center and President's Promise coordinates the Bright Futures scholarship during the summer. 

Students pursuing a 2- or 4-year degree within the following colleges may be eligible to apply if their major requires an internship. 

  • AGNR

  • Journalism

  • Education

  • BSOS

  • SPH

  • Public Policy
