The Chancellor’s Undergraduate Internship Program (CUIP) provides full-time students the opportunity to learn valuable professional skills while supporting student resources. Interns work within programs and departments throughout the university, and attend a two-unit leadership seminar during the academic school year. With direct support from mentors, they will conceive, develop, and execute a project applicable to their post. Interns earn either a $4000 or $8,000 scholarship for the academic year, depending on the number of hours the student contributes.

Please come to the Career Center to ask application specific questions and/or for general drop-in advising for your application. The program can be contacted at or 831-459-3973.
