Internship Funding

In 2022, over 75% of Greenlee internships were paid. Historically, more than half of Greenlee students find paid internship opportunities. The Greenlee School strongly encourages all employers to offer paid internships.

Greenlee 499A Internship Scholarships

To help offset the cost of completing an internship, the Greenlee School awards a number of internship scholarships in the spring to Greenlee majors who are enrolled in summer 499A internships.

To meet the criteria for 499A scholarships, Iowa State students must be enrolled full-time with a primary major in advertising, journalism and mass communication or public relations for the semester in which the scholarship is issued. Students are considered full-time during the semester for which they are enrolled in ADVRT, JL MC or P R 499A: Professional Media Internship.  Learn more about 499A scholarships and deadlines.
