Summer Stipend Recipients
Summer Stipend Program
Public interest summer internships are invaluable opportunities to gain experience, make contacts and build upon your commitment to public interest. Because many public interest opportunities are unpaid, students can apply for a summer stipend through the Office of Career Development's competitive Public Interest Stipend Program. Historically, twenty-five to thirty stipends are awarded each year. Stipends have allowed students to work for employers such as the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, the Bronx Defenders, and South Coastal Counties Legal Services, and in locations as far and wide as Ghana, Nepal, Alaska, and Mississippi.
