The Career Education and Vocational Reflection Office and Hampden-Sydney College fully supports its students who engage in experiential learning activities through internships, volunteerism, summer research, and job shadow opportunities. In support of this, we offer internship scholarships for current students who have obtained summer experiential learning opportunities, but may not otherwise be able to participate due to financial constraints. Generous donations have been sustained through these sources:
The Sears Endowment for Student Internships is made possible by the generous gift from the estate of Roy B. Sears '42
The Circle Internship Fund is made possible by a generous gift from fraternity alumni of Hampden-Sydney College
The Charles Wilder Watts, Jr. '31 Chi Phi Internship Endowment is made possible by a generous gift from the estate of Mr. Watts
The Gottwald Internship Endowment is provided by a generous gift from a friend of the College, Bruce C. Gottwald, Jr.
The Robison Internship Endowment comes from the very generous Mr. and Mrs. Charles D. Robison III '70
Applications will be available March 1, 2016 for the April 11 deadline.
Scholarship amounts vary based on each individual application and the discretion of the awards committee.
Application deadline: for summer internships, applications are due in April. Check back in the early Spring semester for the specific date. For internships any time other than summer, contact the Career Education Office for more details on submitting an application.
International Students: any international students who accept summer internships and/or any scholarship funding through Career Education need to see Dani Widdows regarding Curricular Practical Training (CPT) approval. Her office is located in Bagby, room 315.
