Summer Internships

Recognizing that students come to K with vastly differing levels of access to resources (both finances and networks), the CCPD and its partners (CCE and ACSJL) are committed to working toward greater equity in resource allocation. Therefore, the CCPD disburses $4,000 summer internship stipends through a competitive application process open only to students who meet eligibility criteriafirst-generation college students (as self-reported to the College) and/or students with high financial need (as determined by the Financial Aid Office). Students in either of these categories have received notification via email from the CCPD including information about their eligibility and the competitive application process for these stipends.

Regardless of eligibility for stipends, every K student is encouraged to work with a CCPD career coach to find or create an internship opportunity each summer. Handshake includes hundreds of paid and unpaid internship postings, and networking can lead to additional opportunities.

For first-generation and high-need students, there are three types of stipends available, and eligible students can find out more information about them from the list below.

  1. Stipends attached to Community Building Internships are opportunities with local organizations that partner with the Center for Civic Engagement to provide summer opportunities to K students.
  2. ACSJL Internship stipends prioritize internships at organizations with explicit social justice missions. You can find out more information about ACSJL stipends here: 
  3. The CCPD provides internship stipends for any unpaid internship (6 to 8 weeks in length, for at least 200 hours, & not with a local nonprofit) secured by an eligible student.
