Founded in 2004 by students, the Haas Impact Internship Awards (HIIA) provide grants to supplement the income of MBA students pursuing summer internships in the social sector. These funds allow students to put their Haas MBA to use for organizations that are doing important work in communities around the world but cannot offer to pay a typical MBA salary. HIIA has historically been student-run and supported by the Center for Social Sector Leadership (CSSL) and has been made possible by donations from the Berkeley Haas community – students, faculty, staff and alumni.
