About SIGP

SIGP participant in Washington

The Summer Internship Grant Program was established to support Northwestern students participating in unpaid internships. A primary focus is as a funding source for undergraduate Northwestern students who have accepted (or planning on securing) an unpaid internship in an industry that traditionally does not pay their interns. However, it is also a career development program to enrich important learning opportunities as students engage in their internship settings.
