OWU is dedicated to providing the resources and opportunities to participate in internship, externship, and career exploration experiences.

Thanks to the generosity of OWU Alumni and Friends we are able to provide grant funding to students to make participation possible.

Students can apply for grant funding to help offset expenses that may be incurred while participating in these experiences.
