The majority of internships offer a stipend or a salary, but it may be enough. Assess your finances and know/plan your budget before you begin.
For unpaid internships, there are some funding opportunities available through the School of Public Health, the University of Michigan community, and external resources. While many individuals are successful in obtaining financial support, we cannot guarantee the availability or success of applications.

Current School of Public Health students may find multiple opportunities to apply for internship funding on The Heights . Opportunities include funding from the Office of Global Public Health, the Internship Transition and Supplemental Fund, and the Women's Health Fund.
The Taubman Health Sciences Library has put together core strategies for helping students identify funding opportunities at U-M and beyond. Email SPHLibraryHelp@umich.edu with questions.
