There are several opportunities for students to apply for scholarships that they can use toward their summer and fall internship. All Scripps College of Communication junior and senior students are eligible and are selected from each of our schools.
- Don Perris Endowed Scholarship (Qualtrics form) - Each year multiple students are awarded $4,000 to be used towards their summer internship. Students must work a minimum of 35 hours over a 10 week period during the summer. The application period opened Feb. 2 and closes at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2023. Open to all Scripps College of Communication juniors and seniors.
Don Perris Scholar Harlan Friedman-Romell, BSC '22 used the Don Perris Scholarship to help fund his OHIO-in-LA study away experience. He is now living and working in Los Angeles, Calif.
- Scripps Howard Foundation Internship Grant - Due to the generosity of the Scripps Howard Foundation, each year internship grants are awarded for students from our schools. There will be one awardee for summer 2023. This student will be awarded $3,000. Students must work a minimum of 35 hours over a 10 week period during the summer. The application process is bundled with the Don Perris application.
