Internships provide an excellent opportunity for students to apply their school learning to real-world experiences. We encourage our students to have an internship at some point during their Skidmore career. Students can earn credit for internships, as described below.  For unpaid summer internships, Skidmore provides several competitive funding opportunities. 

Internships for credit

Students who wish to earn credit for their internships can do so through the Office of Academic Advising. Credit-bearing internships require both an on-site supervisor, who monitors the practice of the internship, and a faculty sponsor, who adds an academic component to the internship. Internships taken for academic credit require a strong academic center. The amount of academic work assigned by the faculty sponsor should be commensurate with the number of credit hours earned during their internship.

Funding opportunities for summer internships

Several Skidmore offices, groups, departments, and programs provide competitive summer funding, including the following:
