The Ariel Internship Program offers a minimum of 25 summer stipends each year to encourage Santa Fe students to gain practical experience while exploring possible career fields. Internships have ranged from apprenticing with a custom guitar maker, to training in legal mediation, to teaching students aspiring to be the first in their families to attend college. Internship stipends are also available to students interested in medicine or biomedical careers. All undergraduates, except January freshmen, are eligible to apply for Ariel stipends. Ariel internships are open to both US and international students.
The college’s Internship Committee considers Ariel requests each February and makes awards of up to $4,000, based on a competitive application process.
The Office of Personal and Professional Development assists students in finding established internships or in developing individual opportunities for career exploration, even if they do not intend to apply for Ariel funding. Ariel application materials are available at the Office of Personal and Professional Development. General information and advice about the Ariel program is available by contacting Pier Quintana at 505-984-6132 or pier.quintana(at)sjc.edu.
