Sponsor an Internship
Connecticut College students typically take an internship related to their field of study the summer after their junior year. The College helps place the students and provides an educational award of up to $3,000 to cover expenses while the student is away from home and campus.
Students are eager for placements arranged through alumni, especially if the alumna/us might serve as a mentor or help make contacts with others in a given field.
Create a summer internship to help a rising senior explore his or her academic or career interests. All job and internship opportunities are posted to CamelLink, the student-accessible job and internship board. Register at CamelLink to post a job or an internship.
