College-Funded Internships Allow Students to Pursue Variety of Career Interests
Bryn Mawr College's Career & Civic Engagement Center's summer internship funding program provides Bryn Mawr students access to funds to pursue their internship of choice. The generous support of alumnae/i, parents, and donors makes the funding possible.
The Career & Civic Engagement Center guides students in maximizing their internship experiences through a series of activities offered by the program. The culminating event is a forum for funded students to share with the Bryn Mawr community about their internship. Held during Owls Fest, students reflected on what they did, what they learned about themselves, and how their experiences helped them to refine and discover their interests. Students also shared how they develop skills tied to the Career & Civic Engagement Center competencies: social responsibility, communication, conceptual thinking, connection, cultural competency, implementation, and reflective practice.
