A new Pathways Fellowships Program has been created to enable St. John’s College students to transition into graduate study or careers that call for special or prerequisite courses. Through this program, students will be able to enroll, for example, in teacher-education courses for the pursuit of public school teaching positions, art classes in preparation of a portfolio, pre-medical courses, or study-abroad programs. (These are only a sample of options and not meant to be all-encompassing.). St. John’s College is committed to supporting students in the pursuit of such endeavors. Students will receive a maximum grant amount of $2,500. As a new program, a limited number of fellowships will be available this year for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Also for currently enrolled students, the Ariel Internship Program is a stipend program designed to encourage undergraduates to participate in summer internships that are related to their career interest and, thereby, obtain actual on-the-job experience. Stipend amounts have varied from $1,500 to $4,000 per student, per summer. (An average internship is six to ten hours a day and runs approximately twelve weeks.)
For details of either of these programs, students are urged to visit the Career Services office (bottom floor of Weigle) or call 505-984-6066.
