The State University Internship Incentive (SUII) Program is a state and university funded program that provides financial support to students participating in internships. Qualifying internships can range from 3 to 15 credits per semester. Students in all majors may qualify, but priority will be given to students enrolled in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Finance) field. Scholarships may be available for the spring 2020 and Summer I 2020 semesters and awards will range from $1000 to $5000 to cover tuition, fees, and expenses.
In order to qualify, students must meet the following criteria:
- Be a permanent legal resident of Massachusetts for at least one year prior to the start of the academic year;
- Be a U.S. citizen or a non-citizen eligible under Title IV guidelines;
- Have a valid 2019–2020 FAFSA on file with the financial aid office;
