William & Mary's Public Policy Program and the Schroeder Center for Health Policy provide financial support for selected undergraduate students who are considering unpaid or low-paid policy-related summer internships. The Public Policy Program will support internships in all areas of public policy, and the Schroeder Center will support internships specifically in the field of health policy.
Selected students will receive as much as $4,000 to support eligible internship positions. The exact amount of the award and total number of awards offered will depend on the selection process and the total number of applicants. Fellowship awardees are selected on a competitive basis.
Internship for Academic Credit
You might also be able to earn academic credits that count toward your degree. Students don't earn academic credit for the internship itself, but for a project that they do that is related to or was inspired by the internship. Students work with a faculty member to develop that project. Please note that the academic credit earned for the internship cannot count toward the elective credits required for the Public Policy major. Click here to find out more.
