Career Services' Internship Fund
Career Services is excited to offer additional grants to fund students' practical experiences — internships, research, and community service. Experiences can be in any career field. Funding is awarded to students who best articulate the potential value of the proposed experience to the career exploration process and/or the advancement of career ambitions.
The following fellowships are additional opportunities that are not covered by the common application. To be considered for any of the following you must apply directly to each fund.
The Jim P. Manzi '73 Fellowship
The Manzi Fellowship Program is a paid summer internship program that allows students attending Colgate University to work in non-profit organizations in the Boston area. Established in 1995 by Jim Manzi ’73, students are selected on a competitive basis. Significant criteria for selection are a demonstrated commitment to community service and the potential to pursue such work after college. Those awarded a Fellowship receive a stipend of $4,400 and are assigned to a project or agency, working 40 hours per week for 10 weeks. Applications are available in the fall.
