Sigma Tau Delta Internship Stipend

Sigma Tau Delta offers funding for current undergraduate and graduate student members accepting non- or low-paying internships. The Internship Stipend is a competitive program providing a limited number of stipends of up to $1,500 each.

The internship must involve working for an "organization" while being directed by a supervisor/mentor within that organization, and the intern’s duties must be consistent with the applicant’s level of education, area of study, and career goals. Financial need will be taken into consideration in addition to internship length. Applicants are responsible for obtaining and providing verification of the internship. Check out BestColleges' Ultimate Guide to Internships for advice in finding and applying for internships.

The internship stipend does not apply to activities that are part of a student’s degree requirements, such as student teaching, and cannot be used to supplement a graduate assistantship.

Sigma Tau Delta Journal Internship

A paid three-month internship opportunity is available with the Sigma Tau Delta Journals. This opportunity will provide three Sigma Tau Delta student members (undergraduate or graduate) with editorial and publication experience. These interns will work with the Managing Editor on the publications, from May 10 until August 10. The interns may complete this internship from any location, so long as they have reliable internet access. Each intern will be paid $300 per month for three months ($900 total). Applications will be accepted between January 23 and February 13, 2023 to work during summer 2023 on the 2024 Journals.

Applicants must be prepared to accept the internship and its conditions if it is awarded to them. Failure to do so may jeopardize the continuation of the internship program.
