The financial impacts of COVID-19 continue to affect students as they focus on advancing their education and launching their careers. Since professional work opportunities and financial resources are now more limited than ever, many Emory students are unable to take advantage of the high quality but lower paid or unpaid internships that have the potential to propel their careers.
Internships provide great experiential learning and professional growth but many students do not have the financial security to take unpaid internships and incur internship related expenses. Through philanthropy, you can help students pursue these opportunities by supporting internship stipends to cover living expenses for those working unpaid internships.
Your support allows students to take advantage of unpaid internship opportunities and gain valuable professional experience which will increase the possibility of a paid part-time or full-time offer in the future. Your gift to one of the following professional development funds at Emory empowers students to focus on building their skills and professional experience regardless of their financial situation.
- Emory University Summer Internship Program - gifts to this fund support the Emory Civic Scholars Program. Full-time Emory students who demonstrate financial hardship may be able to accept an impactful but unpaid internship by applying for a $1,500 scholarship through the Civic Scholars Program.
- BBA GoBeyond Fund - gifts to this fund help Goizueta Business School BBA students with expenses for educational and professional experiences not covered by tuition, such as travel for career treks and clothing for interviews.
- Oxford Experiential Education/Internship - gifts to this fund help Oxford College of Emory University students participate in experiential learning opportunities and internships that support their professional and educational development.
