Find an unpaid internship? Funding is available.

“I wanted an internship in insurance to see what the industry was like.  After this summer, I definitely want to look for a career in insurance.  Acadia allowed me to see pretty much everything that goes on in the insurance world.  This internship has allowed me to narrow down my choices to either actuarial sciences or underwriting.”

 Michael Gumbley ‘12, Acadia Insurance


“Recruiting at the entry level is one of our company’s most formidable challenges, but, without exception, every Holy Cross intern we’ve had hit the ground running and immediately took on considerable responsibility. Having participated in the Holy Cross Summer Internship Program for nearly a decade, we can say with considerable authority that the school’s students are extremely well-rounded and are of the highest professional caliber.”
