The Purdue Institute for Civic Communication (PICC) may be able to provide limited support for PICC students in good standing who are selected for nonpartisan internships with our partners. The merit-based support is meant to complement any compensation the student intern receives from her/his employer. Students whose internships are entirely unpaid will receive priority consideration. An award can only be given once a student provides written proof of a internship s/he has accepted, including any wage/payment information. The student must also detail other scholarships s/he expects to receive related to the internship period. Students applying for PICC assistance are required to commit to the full 10-week summer program. Student's must have a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.3 and submit an 800-word essay on the goals students will pursue through the internship.
To apply, please fill the below information. Awardees will be notified no later than May 1, 2017, if they have received support. Student must accept through an email to Ambassador Curiel and Dr. Cahill at picc.@purdue.edu within 48 hours of the award offer.
With questions about internship support, please contact Dr. Cahill, firstname.lastname@example.org.
