Internship Funding Awards
The Summer Internship Funding Awards Program is designed with the intention to increase the ability of all Colorado College students to participate in internship opportunities many of which remain unpaid or underpaid.
Summer 2018 Internship Awards
All currently enrolled Colorado College students who will return to campus for a minimum of one semester in the fall of 2018 are welcome to apply. Colorado College students are eligible to receive one award during their four undergraduate years.
Eligible internships must be a minimum of 6 weeks and 240 hours. If the internship is outside of the U.S., your location and travel plans must be approved. Applicants must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to be eligible. The internship must be away from the CC campus, and third-party programs are not eligible. While the internship does not need to be confirmed or accepted at the time of application, verification of the confirmed internship will be required before the award is officially secured.
The 2018 Internship Funding Application will open February 19, 2018. All applications must be submitted through Summit. The application will remain open until all funds are allocated.
The Career Center will establish required professional development opportunities throughout the spring semester for all funding recipients. Watch for more details to come.
All recipients agree to completion of the following prior to receiving funding, during their internship, and upon returning to campus:
- Provide a photo and basic details of your internship for the Career Center website.
- Letter-to-self establishing goals and expectations for your experience.
- Complete the Summer Experience Survey in early Fall 2018.
- Review your updated resume (including your summer experience) with a Career Center staff member.
- Be available to participate in panels, programs and interviews throughout the year with advance notice.
Full details will be available soon. If you have specific questions about your eligibility or this process, please contact Andrea Culp, in the Career Center.
