The College of Health and Human Development offers funds to provide assistance for undergraduate students at University Park in the College who are completing a credit-bearing field experience, practicum, or internship in the field of adulthood and aging as part of their course of studies.


Graduate and/or undergraduate students eligible for this funding should be participating in an internship opportunity related to adulthood and aging.  Students who are completing an internship with the Madelyn and Leonard Abramson Center for Jewish Life in North Wales, PA are strongly encouraged to apply, and will have first preference for this award.  Students who are completing an internship in a continuing care facility for adults have second preference for this award. If no students meet the first or second preference for this award, then any HHD students participating in an internship related to adulthood and aging will be considered for this award.

Application Process

Students interested in receiving this funding should contact their internship adviser for a recommendation.  Recommendations must include student name and PSU ID#, internship adviser name and email address, where/when the student is conducting the internship.  

Recommendations should be submitted to Heather Zimmerman in the Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies and Outreach.
