In collaboration with your university, TheDream.US is excited to launch its Internship Funding Program, an opportunity for TheDream.US Scholars to receive paid internship experience with organizations nationwide.
This program offers two unique funding opportunities:
- Funding for an Unpaid Internship: If you have secured an unpaid internship that is relevant to your major and/or career interests, you may be eligible to receive funding for this opportunity. Create an account in Parker Dewey and search for "TheDream.US Internship Funding Application" and select the application for your school to review requirements and apply.
- Paid Micro-Internships: Nonprofit organizations and small businesses within your community are invited to post Micro-Internships which range from 40-200 hours. These projects are approved by your university and funded through TheDream.US so that you receive $20 per estimated project hour.
TheDream.US Internship Funding Program is facilitated via the Parker Dewey platform. Selected students will be paid as independent contractors of Parker Dewey.
Parker Dewey lists many additional Micro-Internships which are funded by the organizations which offer them. You are encouraged to take advantage of those opportunities as well.
If you participate in this program, you will be paid as an independent contractor. DACA or TPS are not required.
You may use your work authorization or a valid ITIN to be paid as an Independent contractor.
You may already have an ITIN if your parents ever filed incomes taxes and claimed you as a dependent. Find out if you have an ITIN in your parents’ tax forms. If you have an ITIN, find out if it has expired and how to renew it here: IRS.
If you do not have an ITIN, see here how to obtain one using the W-7 form: Immigrants Rising: UndocuHustle.
