Financial Awards for Interns

About the Awards for Interns

Susquehanna Bank generously contributed funds to Millersville University to support undergraduate students providing service to the community in the form of an internship in a nonprofit or government agency.  Student awardees are completing a credit-bearing internship in an unpaid position at a nonprofit or government agency. This is a one-time, non-renewable award.

The application process for the Susquehanna Bank Award is a rolling application process for the spring and fall terms, but there is a deadline for the summer term application of Friday, May 14, 2021.

The Starbrad Excellence in Science Award supports undergraduate students majoring in one of the natural sciences, preferably Chemistry.  An award of $1,000 is offered to a selected student who is completing a credit-bearing internship in the summer and demonstrates financial need.  This is a one-time, non-renewable award.

The application deadline for the Starbrad award is Friday, May 14, 2021.
