Development and Alumni Relations Summer Internship Program

Spend your summer with us.

The Division of Development and Alumni Relations Summer Internship Program is an eleven-week program for students or recent graduates interested in learning more about a career in fundraising and nonprofit work. This experience immerses selected individual in the workings of a development office at Penn State’s University Park campus. It enables participants to learn about the fundraising profession while gaining firsthand experience assisting the operations of a development office. By coupling hands-on work with traditional classroom learning, the internship is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and the skills to embark on a career in higher education development or nonprofit work.

Applications for the 2020 program are now closed. Please check back in the fall of 2020 for applications for our summer 2021 internship!
