Micro-Internship Program Micro Internships are short-term, project-based experiences designed to provide practical experience to transfer students who have little to no professional experience, while also enhancing their skills. Each project is 12 hours of completion time for the duration of 2-4 weeks. CUSP students who attend three professional development workshops and successfully complete a project during the targeted timeframe will receive a stipend.  Students who complete a project during the targeted timeframe will receive a $500 stipend.


  • This must be your first semester as a CUSP Transfer student
  • Have NOT completed a Micro-Internship before
