Graduate Internship Program

The Graduate Internship Program is an elite internship program for full-time students. Graduate Interns gain experience working in an industry setting – with companies like AAA, Christiana Care, Siegfried, Sallie Mae, DuPont and Barclays – while earning a stipend and tuition scholarship. Many interns also earn job offers through their performance in the program.

Graduate Interns work on short-term projects, research, reports and campaigns. They test and apply what they learn in class, enhancing learning with experience.
