  • Service (projects related to serving your community)

*A low-paid internship is defined as receiving less than minimum wage ($9.20/hour)

The funding is composed of student-fee money ($1.00/semester), a "research fee" that was passed by ASUM, your student government, through a student referendum in spring 2015. Additional contributions come from Experiential Learning and Career Success, the Office for Research and Creative Scholarship, and the Washington Corporation.
