Apply by Feb. 29 for spring internship incentives

University of South Carolina students with in-state internships and co-ops for the spring semester have through Feb. 29 to apply for $3,000 awards.

Why it matters: The South Carolina Internship Program supports students of all majors gaining work experience in high-demand industries in the Palmetto State. 

  • The program also recognizes S.C. employers who provide work opportunities to USC students, helping to keep top talent in the state.   

What’s next: USC will distribute the one-time payments to students on a first-come, first-served basis.  

  • Preference will be given to undergraduate students with internships and co-ops in the manufacturing, aerospace, energy, health and life sciences and financial services industries. 
  • Interested students can learn more and apply on the program webpage.  

What they're saying: "I had to try to find a way to cover expenses such as traveling, food and transportation. Knowing I would be reimbursed for everything that I spent on the internship took a burden off me and my family." — Keynan Kennedy, fourth-year biological sciences major and 2023 South Carolina Internship Program participant
