About our summer Programs

Experiential Learning at Puget Sound offers two different Summer Immersion Internship Programs, each designed to support talented Puget Sound students who wish to enhance their knowledge on a career trajectory. The two different programs allow us to fulfill each student's unique needs.

Participating Pierce County organizations take on a Puget Sound student for a ten-week internship over the summer. Time is set aside in both programs for students to engage in a academic educational component, within which they learn how to critically reflect on their intern experience. They will have the opportunity to connect this experience with their Puget Sound academic discipline. Students who are selected will engage in ongoing reflection and self-assessment culminating in a final presentation at a campus symposium in the fall.


WHAT IS the SUMMER FELLOWSHIP INTERNSHIP?

The Summer Fellowship Internship is designed to support Puget Sound students who want to gain career experience and increase their knowledge, but would not otherwise be able to participate in an unpaid internship program.

  • A $3,000 need-based fellowship is awarded to Summer Fellowship Internship participants.
  • Students work 28 hours a week for 10 weeks.
  • Two hours per week are reserved for an experiential learning course.

WHAT IS the SUMMER ACADEMIC Internship?

The Summer Academic Internship is designed to support Puget Sound students who want to gain career experience and increase their knowledge while earning academic credit.
