FAQs

Can I receive credit for my internship?

Please seen our page about the South Madison Independent Study here.

How long are internships?

Internships last one semester, at which point the intern has the option to continue in the same position, apply for a different internship in the organization, or complete the internship.

What will be expected of me?

Juggling the commitment of a SFUW internship on top of school, work and other extracurriculars (and a social life!) can be a tricky balance. Different internship positions have different day-to-day requirements and expected time commitments so that individuals can match their interest, capacity and schedule to these expectations.

SFUW requires all interns to meet the goals that they and their advisor set throughout the semester if they are receiving credit, as well as the organization’s responsibilities and expectations.  With completion of the internship at the end of the semester, interns are able to list their experience on their resume and are able to request an official letter of recommendation from their project director.

Am I eligible?

All UW-Madison students are eligible to apply.

Can I apply to more than one internship?

Students are welcome to apply to more than one internship, but will only be accepted for one position. We encourage all students interested in becoming SFUW interns to volunteer with the organization and learn more about the projects and internships prior to/during the application process.
