INFORMATION and INSTRUCTIONS
In order to be considered for admission to the University Internship Programs (UIP), you must first complete the application below; and, second, complete an interview with a UIP representative. You will have the opportunity to select an interview time when you submit your completed application.
Information sessions, admission, and in-person interviewing events and deadlines for UIP's summer and academic year programs will take place on Grounds during the Spring 2017 semester. Therefore, if you are going to be off Grounds during the Spring 2017 semester, please take the initiative to make arrangements to complete your application and conduct your preliminary in-person interview before the Spring 2017 semester. There are a limited number of interviewing times available. UIP will accommodate students on a first-come, first-served basis. Because many others will be attempting to do the same, please do not wait until the last minute, contact UIP as early as possible to make your arrangements (firstname.lastname@example.org, 434-243-1751, 434-924-0697, 434-924-0695, 434-982-5552). Even if you are unable to participate in the in-person, on-Grounds, application interviews and related activities in the Spring 2017, you are encouraged to submit your online application before the application period deadline. You will be placed on a wait list for further consideration and interviews at the beginning of the Fall 2017 semester.
UIP application periods and application deadlines are as follows:
Type all information directly into your application. Please DO NOT copy/cut and paste information into the application from another document, or from elsewhere within the application form. Embedded coding in the copy/cut and paste process will cause problems with your ability to submit and print your application information. Also, please navigate within the application form by either moving your cursor from place to place, or using the tab key. Please DO NOT use your return key.
Please preview the application before you begin. If you preview the application and give some preliminary thought to the instructions below, completion of the application should take about 45 to 60 minutes.
You will be able to "Save Information and Complete Application Later." Please see button at the very end of the application. However, you will NOT be able to schedule an internship interview until you have completed and submitted your application. There are a limited number of interviews that can be scheduled during the alloted time period. Available times will be released on a first-come, first-served basis. If you wait to submit your application, you risk the possibility of being shut out because there may be more late submissions than interview slots available. Therefore, it is in your best interest to submit your application as soon as possible.
Selected sections of your application will be shared with prospective internship organizations and supervisors. Therefore, please respond to all questions thoughtfully and completely. Your application should be free of typographical, spelling, grammatical, punctuation, capitalization, and other writing errors.
In part XIV you will be asked about your expected internship outcomes and anticipated post-graduation plans. Your response will assist us in determining the appropriate internship match for you, and will serve as your writing sample for evaluation by UIP faculty, staff, and prospective internship site supervisors.
You will be asked to indicate specific internship topics / subject matter areas in which you are interested from a pull-down menu. You can preview the pull-down menu of internship areas in part XV of the application below.
You will be asked to express a preference for internships in which you are interested from the Online UIP Internship Listing. UIP internships and organizations can be previewed by clicking on the "Online UIP Internship Listing" link in part XVI of the application below.
You may serve in 2 internships during 2017-18 by combining the UIP Academic Year Internship Program option with any of the UIP Summer Session Internship Program options. If you are interested in participating in a summer and academic year internship, you need to complete only 1 application.
