Careers & Internships
Dietrich College encourages its undergraduate students to find and undertake professionally relevant and meaningful internship opportunities. We understand that many of these opportunities are unpaid or, at best, provide minimal compensation. Yet it is often these very positions that provide students with the most meaningful work experiences in helping them define and move forward toward their career goals.
The Dietrich College Internship Opportunity Grant Program makes it more possible for our undergraduate students to take advantage of less remunerative but worthwhile off-campus internship opportunities.
Deadline: January 31
