The Career Education Office fully supports its students who engage in experiential learning activities through internships, volunteerism, summer research, and job shadow opportunities. 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:
Scholarship amounts vary based on each individual application and, following an interview, the discretion of the awards committee.
Application deadlines: applications for summer opportunities are due (typically) in mid-April.
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 202.
