Deciding what to do with your life is one of the most difficult things most of us can face. The purpose of a liberal arts education is to encourage thoughtfulness and self-reflection. And its heart, Jesuit education is about encouraging people to sort through possibilities and to always seek the greater good, not settling for less. The purpose of the Lilly Vocation Discernment Initiative is to enable just such capabilities of reflection and discernment, without which a Holy Cross education could not be complete.
Through funding provided by the Lilly Initiative many paid summer and academic-year internships are available in mutliple fields to help students discern a vocation that is meaningful, enjoyable and makes the best use of their unique talents.
For more information on Lilly internships please see the Lilly Vocation Discernment Initiative site.
