Inclusive Internship Project

Enriched learning experiences - such as internships - play a critical role in students’ personal and professional development, but unpaid internships may also create financial barriers for students. We believe that internship experiences and experience should be equally accessible to all students. Thanks to the Oscar Rennebohm Foundation's gift to Edgewood College, we are able to provide stipends to undergraduate students through the Inclusive Internship Project. Edgewood College strongly encourages faculty and staff to motivate their students to apply for this program so they may benefit from financial security, experience in their field, and working directly within the local community!

Instructor Benefits If you don't not already have an existing internship course to support students, and are the instructor for a student participating in this gift, you are eligible to receive a $100/credit hour stipend compensation Institutional Course (IC) internship courses are built as a framework for you to support the student in this experience. If you do have an internship course in your program, students are eligibility to participate in the gift.

IC Internship Course

Are you thinking about additional ways you can help support students who want to pursue an internship as an enriched learning opportunity? Consider partnering with the Career Development Center to run an IC Internship Courses in your discipline! These courses are designed to:

  • Provide an avenue for multiple internships for students
  • Create summer "not-for-credit" experiences
  • Equip areas that do not currently have internship courses with the tools and structure to offer this opportunity to students

Career Development Presentation Options

"I feel like I've gained a much better understanding of marketing and possible career paths. I've been able to learn more about a field that I wasn't very comfortable with. I've been able to experience different sides of marketing and to see multiple career opportunities within this field. I also feel like I was able to establish positive relationships with the individuals that I worked with. I think that I worked well in a team environment and was able to contribute thoughts and ideas."
