Tina Nguyen

Please note: students must meet all the internship, eligibility and summer requirements to receive WOW funding.

Internship Requirements

Your internship needs to:


Internships that are arranged by an internship placement service or through a third-party organization are NOT eligible to apply. This includes any organization that requires fee-for-service, fee-for-materials, or mandatory donations to the organization.

Summer Requirements

Check-Ins with your Hiatt Liaison

You’ll be assigned a Hiatt liaison who can help answer questions, assist you should unexpected circumstances arise, and help guide your progress during the internship experience. You’ll connect with your liaison at least twice, during the first week of your internship and again for a midsummer check in.

Blog Posts & Writing

You’ll submit three blog posts, asking you to reflect on your internship and your experience. Posts will be at least 500 words and your Hiatt liaison will review and help you publish your post. At the end of the summer you'll work with your liaison to update your resume and include your recent internship. You’ll also write a thank you note to your WOW donor.


Help other students learn about your internship by providing an internship review on Handshake. Your supervisor will also complete an evaluation of your performance.

For students awarded the Social Justice WOWs

You’ll attend a Social Justice WOW reception with the fund's donor upon returning to campus.
