Graduate Summer Internship Fund

In recognition of the invaluable role students play in improving quality of life for people and their communities, the USC Price School of Public Policy has established the Price Graduate Summer Internship Fund (GSIF).

GSIF provides scholarships for select master’s students who participate in unpaid summer internships in the United States and abroad.

In summer 2019, a minimum of five master’s students will be awarded scholarships while they support organizations whose work aligns with the Price School’s mission. Eligible applicants must be full-time first-year students enrolled in two-year master’s degree programs (MHA, MPA, MPL, MPP) or second-year dual degree students (e.g., MPP/MPL and MPA/MSW).

To learn more about the application process and eligibility, visit the Internship Fund’s FAQ page.

GSIF began as a student initiative led by the Graduate Policy and Administration Community (GPAC), and took shape through the collaborative effort of various Price School units, including the offices of Dean Jack H. Knott, Student Affairs, Career Services, Development and External Relations and the Price Alumni Association.
