Transitions and Transformations

Collaborative research, internships and other experiential learning opportunities help students realize their passion and potential and set them on the path successful, fulfilling careers.

Why Now?

  • Employers seek creative thinkers with practical experience who know how to achieve results.
  • Hands-on experience helps students to explore a particular career and gain relevant knowledge and skills.
  • Currently, Skidmore is only able to support 25% of students who apply for summer internship funding.
  • We want all students to have the chance to participate in at least one career-enhancing opportunity during their time here.

Campaign Goals

  • Double the number of funded summer internships
  • Increase student research opportunities
  • Expand our career preparation programs
  • Establish more artistic residencies, workshops and apprenticeships

OUR GOAL - $10 million
