Summer Intern Spotlight
Our students know that employers are looking for graduates with a combination of strong academic preparation and practical on-the-job experience gleaned from internships. Liberal Arts students seek meaningful internships where they use their communication, problem-solving, and analytical skills in real world situations. Among various experiential learning opportunities, the Gallup-Purdue Index points to internships as one of the “Big Six” key college experiences that prepare students well for life and enhance their chance of completing their degree on time.
To provide real world opportunities that prepare Purdue Liberal Arts students for inspired careers and bold leadership, the College created Job-Ready to make internships a viable option for more of our students. To that end, the College is committed to providing up to $2K in financial support* to students who choose to pursue unpaid and low-paid summer internships off campus. Please note: Internships with Purdue University units or affiliate organizations, for example Purdue for Life and Purdue Research Foundation, are NOT eligible for Job-Ready Awards.
