An internship is one type of experiential learning. It allows you to have hands-on experience in an area you are looking to explore. Internships are just one step on the path to your dream career. Get started on that pathway by meeting with one of our Internship Team Members or by exploring our resources. Internship Team appointments cover the whole spectrum of internship searching from getting started, to resume reviews, to searching, to interview prep. Schedule an appointment here.

In addition, your academic department web-page is a great resource to start with when thinking about seeking an internship or research opportunity. Many scholarships, fellowships, and awards are available to assist with funding these opportunities.  Check out what your department or school has to offer here.
