U-M Student Internship Funding

Getting accepted to an internship through the Japan Internship Initiative does not guarantee that you will receive funding. It is the intern’s responsibility to cover work and living expenses not provided by the employer, and submit separate applications for necessary funding.

Below are some links to student funding sources that can be applied to a summer internship. Note that some of the funding opportunities are open to all students, and some are restricted to students of certain departments; others too are restricted by internship location.

Be sure to check the deadline of the funding source you want to apply for. All applications are competitive, and no funding is guaranteed. Students are encouraged to apply early and seek funding from multiple sources.
