Internships, research, and long-term community service allow students to gain insight on their career paths, test different work environments, shape and grow their professional networks, and develop the essential skill sets to thrive in the professional arena. The value of Colgate’s distinguished liberal arts education coupled with practical, hands-on experience obtained through an internship can give our students a significant advantage as they enter the workforce.
Often low-paid or unpaid opportunities can deter students from gaining the experience necessary to grow professionally. Summer Funding can help cover the supplemental costs associated with pursuing an unpaid opportunity, allowing students to explore potential industries of interest and pursue their passions.
