Internships & Co-ops

Intern of the Month/Intern of the Year

In an effort to acknowledge outstanding NIU students who have completed a career-related work experience through Career Services, we select a group of students who have excelled on the job.

Intern of the Month

We select seven internship/co-op interns throughout the year and honor each as an Internship/Co-op Intern of the Month for the months of February, March, June, July, August, September, and October.

Intern of the Year

Then in March of the following year, we pick three of these Internship/Co-op Intern of the Month winners to be recognized as NIU Internship/Co-op Intern of the Year -- Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards.
