Mission Statement: The mission of the Beyond Barnard Internships Program is to provide funding for exceptional students from Barnard’s diverse student population to facilitate internship opportunities that advance student career exploration through meaningful exposures to career fields of interest.
Overview: The Beyond Barnard Internship Program represents the successful collaboration of Beyond Barnard and alumnae, individual, and foundation donors interested in advancing and support of undergraduate women. Students involved in unpaid internships are eligible to apply for grants in the fall, spring, and summer. Some grants are open only to students pursuing internships in specific fields (i.e., public service, science, or the arts); others are more general in scope regardless of the applicant’s career interest or major. Students apply to the program and will be considered for all grants for which they meet the eligibility requirements. Students may apply for an Internship Grant Award every semester. Awards are based on funding availabilty, and may vary in amount. College-subsidized summer housing may be available to summer internship grantees. Grantees may only receive one grant per semester or summer period.
