Guaranteed Internship

Recognizing just how important an internship is in determining career direction, the Colleges have made a bold commitment. The Colleges guarantee that students of good academic or social standing who successfully complete the Pathways Program will be able to participate in at least one internship or research opportunity. In most cases, the internship will happen in the summer after the junior year. For internships or research opportunities that are unpaid, the Colleges will provide a stipend. The guarantee is an important aspect of the Colleges’ approach to preparing students to lead lives of consequence. Learn more.
