Funding for Community Service Summer Internships at Non-profit Organizations

For the past several years, Union College has received endowed funds to support students interning during the summer at community service non-profit organizations. For summer 2015, funding will be provided by the Class of 1973 35th ReUnion Community Service Internship Endowment, the Roger Hull Summer Community Service Endowed Internship, and the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Mohammad A. Omar '94 Memorial Community Service Endowed Internship. Students need to secure their own internship and then apply for the funding through the Becker Career Center.
