This summer, more than 350 Northwestern students are receiving grants of at least $3,000 to participate in unpaid internships through the Northwestern Career Advancement (NCA) Summer Internship Grant Program (SIGP). This funding is donated from many sources throughout the Northwestern community, such as alumni networks, staff and administration, and friends of the University, and is given in order to financially assist undergraduates who want to complete internships in fields that do not offer paid experiences. Additionally, SIGP recipients are encouraged to engage in career development activities over the summer and to blog about their experiences working in their field.
