Hodson Trust Internship Program

The Hodson Trust Internship Program, made possible through a generous grant from the Hodson Trust, provides funding for summer internships for undergraduate students. Students can apply for funding for otherwise unfunded internships, or design their own projects, working directly with mentors in their field.

This program gives students an opportunity to acquire professional experience during their college years. Students can expand the range of their skills, explore their talents, and learn about the realities of fields in which they think they might like to work.

The Career Services Office assists students throughout the process of finding and applying for internships, whether or not they plan to compete for Hodson funding.
