  • Internships will be funded for a minimum of five weeks (35 days) and a maximum of eight weeks (56 days), either in the summer or during a semester.

The Asbury Initiative requires that the proposals be judged competitively by a selection committee. The selection committee will focus on the viability and quality of the written proposal, the presentation of the internship opportunity, and how well the student makes the case for his or her participation in the internship. Details on how to create a proposal are included in the application process information.
