The Wasserman Center Internship Grant
The Wasserman Center Internship Grant and the Wasserman Center Global Internship Grant were established to provide financial assistance to students pursuing unpaid internships in qualifying industries that do not traditionally pay their interns. The Wasserman Center offers the $1,000 grants during the fall, spring, and summer terms. Applications are reviewed by Wasserman Center staff and representatives from various NYU academic departments.
