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. 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: 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 202.
Questions? Please contact Ms. Becca Snyder Shelton at firstname.lastname@example.org, or x6105.
