BBA Student Career Development Fund Application

The BBA Student Career Development Fund connects undergraduate business students with meaningful, career-oriented experiential learning to help you successfully achieve your internship and career goals. The Fund provides multiple awards (amount subject to variation) to admitted Wisconsin BBA students on a monthly basis. A student may receive up to $2,000 per academic year but can apply for an award each year. Students are evaluated using Wisconsin BBA Career Services criteria (value of the experience related to career decision-making and success, student commitment to personal growth and career development).

The types of career experiences that would qualify for an award might include:

  • Unpaid (or below market) internship living expenses (not a direct salary payment and not available for students receiving credit for an experience)
  • Job shadow experiences
  • Industry or company-specific workshops and events
  • Student treks (both individual and as part of a student organization)
  • Student org membership dues
  • Informational interviews
  • Alumni or industry-focused networking events via professional associations

Award value up to $2,000

The Career Engagement Team will contact you regardless of outcome following each review cycle on a monthly basis. Students who accept the award will be required to complete a pre- and post- experience survey and 1:1 career advising consultation.
