Established by Maurya MacNeil Boyd, Class of 1987, and Bob Boyd, Class of 1988, the Boyd Family Internship Grant assists students who are participating in unpaid or low-paying internships with a focus on education, public service or civic engagement. Grants are available in the amount of $3,000.
You and your chosen internship must meet the same requirements listed for the Career Development Summer Internship Grant. The internship must focus on education, public service or civic engagement.
To apply for a Boyd Family Internship Grant, first identify and apply for an internship that meets the requirements referenced above. The Center for Career Development can help guide you through an internship search. Once you are offered the internship or are in the interview process, you may apply for the grant.

Prior to submitting your application, you may wish to have a career adviser review your application materials during walk-in hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.) to make sure that they are in the best possible shape.
Two information sessions will be offered during Common Hour (11:05 a.m.-12:05 p.m.).
