Important Note for Spring 2021:  Woodbury University is not endorsing in-person WISE activities at this time due to  COVID-19 risks and therefore cannot provide WISE scholarships for in-person experiences without a signed waiver that the organization with which a student is working is adhering to LA County COVID-10 health and safety protocols.
If engaged in an in-person activity or experience, students must complete the “Internship / Work Experience Employer Acknowledgement and Acceptance of County COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols” form and submit it to the Career Services Coordinator, Internship/Work Experience Coordinator, School Outreach Director, or the Chair or Coordinator of program before participating in WISE.
