The internship aims to provide liberal arts majors with educational opportunities that expand their education and learning experience outside the classroom and to prepare them for graduate or professional school; advanced work in writing, the visual arts, or performing arts; or for nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships. Funds may be used for travel to and from the internship, living expenses, and/or appropriate research or other materials necessary to conduct the internship. Funds may not to be used for tuition, and credit may not be earned for the internship.
