Launched in 2020, the HBCU IMPACT Program is a partnership between the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah, Howard University, and other Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The IMPACT (Internships, Mentorship, Professional Development, Academic Achievement, Community Service, Talent Enrichment) Program was built to immerse diverse and talented undergraduate and graduate students from all over the country in the unique and exciting environment of Salt Lake City, Utah. Students are given opportunities to intern at premier companies, gain and provide mentorship, enhance professional development skills, work toward academic achievement, engage with the community, and reach new heights.

These internships cover:

  • Flights to and from Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Housing at Lassonde Studios, the University of Utah’s housing for entrepreneurs and creators. This will be your home for the duration of your internship.  Here you will be able to meet and collaborate with other students who are a part of this program as well as with students who attend the University of Utah.
  • Competitive Salary
  • Weekend activities that expose students to Utah’s unique culture. Some previous activities include riding ATVs, attending a rodeo, and going paddle boarding.
