Summer Internships

You've heard it over and over: a summer internship is a crucial component of a college student's career. Now it is time you actually do something about it.

The Center for Career Development posts hundreds of internship opportunities to all students through Handshake.  You’ll find a variety of internships to which you can apply including advertising, medicine, finance, law, publishing, research and social services, among many other fields. 

For a complete overview on how to find an internship, attend an Internship/Job Search Workshop. We will be conducting these workshops throughout the year on Wednesdays at 4:00pm in Hogan 203.  Visit the Calendar for a complete list of workshops.

Many internships are designed specifically for Holy Cross students and include:

  • Project-based internships with challenging work assignments
  • Supervision, evaluation and networking with key staff at the internship site, many of whom are Holy Cross alumni
  • Assistance and support throughout the application process and the internship from Holy Cross staff through site visits, evaluations, and regular communication


Summer Internship Funding

The Crusader Internship Fund provides a stipend for unpaid internships, allowing students to pursue an opportunity that they may not otherwise be able to accept. Last summer over 100 students received funding for internships across the board – nonprofits, government, communications, healthcare business, and the arts.

Sophomores and Juniors are eligible to receive summer internship funding once during their time at Holy Cross.
