  • +$100K funding supports 50+ students annually in scholar awards for unpaid internships and research    

All students are invited to join at least one of the following career communities led by four Career Coaches. Each community convenes for skill-building workshops, career panels and recruitment events. 

  • Health, Sustainability and Science
  • Technology, Business, Media and Communication
