Money for your Internship

It can be tough to manage the many expenses that come along with a summer internship. The SuccessWorks Internship Fund is here to help.  

Summer 2019 Internship Fund application will open February 1 and close March 31!

Awards of up to $5000 are made possible through generous donations from UW-Madison family and friends.
