The Internship Opportunity Fund:
Funds for Students with Summer 2017 Internships!
The Internship Opportunity Fund strengthens the career readiness of our students and the quality of their career outcomes. The fund provides $2,500 stipends to students who need additional funding to take advantage of high quality internships in expensive metropolitan areas or for students interning in a non-profit, social enterprise, or start-up that may not be able to provide a stipend.
The Internship Opportunity Fund is supported by the generous contributions of the Paul College Dean’s Advisory Board and additional Paul College Alumni and friends.
