Applying for a scholarship or internship
While specific internships may have their own requirements, we have surveyed some of our partners and gathered together some general tips to keep in mind when writing your cover letter and sending your resume.
- you may not have any relevant work experience, that’s the reason for the internship in the first place! However, include a sentence or two about why you are interested in the field.
- In your cover letter, show that you have researched the company, mention the company name, suggest a reason why you are interested in working with them
- Some companies have branches or offices in many locations, specify if you have a preference as to where you would like to work, if you don’t have a preference, state that too
- Most importantly, tailor your application to the internship, don’t send a generic cover letter
