Skidmore Summer Funded Internship Awards 2017

The awards are designed to offer full-time Skidmore students an opportunity to gain the relevant knowledge, skills, and experience employers require of entry-level candidates. Since previous work experience is often listed as a requirement for job applicants, this program was created to provide students with an opportunity to gain the relevant experience and skills needed to become a competitive candidate in today's job market.

One common application will be used for most awards. Students are required to apply to all awards they are eligible for in order to be considered.
