Scholarship for interns in Washington D.C.

Posted on November 7, 2019

This fall marked the launch of a new scholarship for graduate students funded by a generous donation to the ASU Foundation. The ASU WISH Scholarship was established to offset the costs and expenses of ASU graduate students participating in internships based in Washington D.C. Recipients receive partial funding toward the cost of living in a pre-designated property managed by Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH) for one semester during their internship period.

Awards range from $1,000 to $4,000 and will be applied to the recipient's student account through ASU Financial Aid.

Multiple awards are available for the fall, spring and summer semesters. Any ASU graduate student participating in an internship for ASU credit in the respective semester who is able to demonstrate financial need is eligible to apply.

Students should apply directly:

  • Summer 2020 application deadline is January 17, 2020 at noon

  • Fall 2020 application deadline is May 8, 2020 at noon
