Sophmore and Junior Parents Fund
Help fund an internship for every student
The focus of the Class of 2019 and Class of 2020 Parents Funds will be Skidmore's Summer Funded Internship Awards Program. Through support of this program, you will be helping Skidmore provide financial resources for students who wish to strengthen their academic experience with real-world internship experience. Internships in business, museums, hospitals, and community organizations across the county and around the world not only deepens students’ knowledge, but also help them transition to life beyond college.Skidmore's rich tradition of combining theoretical with practical learning ("mind and hand") has been a hallmark of the Skidmore student experience, an experience that is evident today in Skidmore's vibrant internship program. Skidmore wants to encourage more students to complete internships by removing some of the financial barriers preventing students from taking what are normally unpaid summer internships.
Investing in this program will help ensure that it becomes a permanent part of the Skidmore experience and that all students have a chance to participate in at least one of these career-enhancing opportunities.
