Fund your experience

We understand that spending a quarter abroad or taking an unpaid internship outside of the Denver area may not be possible without financial support. Therefore, with the generous financial support of donors, our office offers funding from the Social Science Foundation, Paterson Fund and Destiny Capital Corporation Fund to help offset the costs associated with unpaid or underpaid internships.
