Internship funding is competitive and faculty and staff committees review applications to select students to receive awards.
At the end of each grant cycle, department representatives gather to identify those individuals who have received awards which in total exceed their accepted budget. Adjustments are then made in awards to assure that awardees do not receive duplicate funds so that we may maximize the number of strong proposals which receive support.
