In the CCE’s ongoing commitment to work toward greater equity in resource allocation, these summer internship positions (in cooperation with the CCPD) are a competitive application process open only to students who meet eligibility criteria, i.e. first-generation college students (as self-reported to the College) and/or students with high financial need (as determined by the Financial Aid Office). Please contact Paulette Rieger at prieger@kzoo.edu if you have questions about your eligibility or about the internships. 

These positions come with a $4,000 stipend. Additional requirements will be made available once the internship has been offered to the student.
All Interns must be able to provide their own transportation to and from the site. Please look at requirements in position descriptions when posted on Handshake. Summer 2020 opportunities will be posted in February 2020.
