ABOUT: Student Success Internship

With funding from the University of California Office of the President, the Division of Student Affairs and the Office Undergraduate Education have developed an undergraduate internship program called the Student Success Internship. The internships are centered on the UC Merced campus or its satellite locations. Participating departments design new and meaningful internship projects and designate a supervisor-mentor to guide and support the intern as they undertake professional and institutionally meaningful projects in lieu of positions that can be viewed as campus student employment.

Now, in its fifth year, the Student Success Internship program is again able to fund 30 undergraduate internship positions. The interns participate in an 8 month-long internship and received a stipend up to $4,000. 

The call for proposals for the 2019-20 internship experiences is now open. If you are a department or faculty member click here to submit your internship proposal. The submission deadline is Friday, Sept. 6th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
