Information for Student Veterans and Employers


The CU Denver Office of Veteran Student Services and the Experiential Learning Center of CU Denver are working together to create this robust internship for student veterans.  Student veterans commonly work up to 20 hours per week for a business, nonprofit or government entity for a 16-week period during the fall and spring semesters.  Students can elect to either receive academic credit or participate in a not-for-credit/non-academic internship.  This program is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who meet the necessary requirements.
