Walker Family Fund

The Walker Family Fund can help fund your unpaid internship. You do not currently need to have an internship. The Career Center will help you find one.

The UNC Asheville Career Center, in collaboration with Student Transitions and Family Programs, is excited to open applications for the Walker Family Fund for Paid Internships Grant. The grant financially supports a first generation UNC Asheville student completing an unpaid internship off-campus in the United States during the summer.

Apply here by December 1, 2023 for a summer 2024 internship.

To be eligible to apply, students must meet the following criteria:

  • 30 completed credits by the end of the Fall 2023 semester

  • Enrolled at least part-time for the semester of their internship

  • In good academic standing with a minimum GPA of 2.5

  • Be a first-generation college student (student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) did not complete a post-secondary degree)

  • Demonstrated financial need

  • Demonstrated commitment to supporting their career development through an internship
