Pack Internship Grant Program
Paid, Local Internships for All Academic Majors
The Pack Internship Grant Program provides funding for 60+ individual student internships with local businesses, nonprofits and public agencies every spring. The Program helps employers develop substantive internships for University of Nevada, Reno students. The grant funds student wages at $12/hour for 120 hours.
When Do the Internships Take Place?
Each intern completes 120 hours during the spring semester. Hours are distributed differently at each internship - employers and interns work together to determine an appropriate schedule. The program sets a maximum of 15 working hours a week for the intern.
How Do Students Apply?
Applying is easy. In Handshake, simply search job postings for the words "Pack Internship." You can apply for as many internships as you want - just be sure to differentiate your application for each position. Applications for Spring 2020 internships are due November 2019. Check the events calendar for an upcoming info session to learn everything you need to know - or just drop by the Studio for expert guidance, resources and support as you work on application materials.

Which Students Can Apply?
Any University of Nevada undergraduate enrolled in at least 15 undergraduate credits with a 2.75 GPA is eligible to apply. Talk to the Career Studio about the possibility of enrolling in a 3-credit internship course to meet the 15-credit eligibility. Applications will be pre-screened by the Career Studio, but each employer will make the final selection.
