Starting in the 2019-2020 academic year, Edgewood College students in liberal arts majors and/or from low socioeconomic backgrounds will be able to participate in a program that pays for 40 student internships per year, funded by the Oscar Rennebohm Foundation.

“This program aligns with our strategic framework perfectly—it has an impact on student learning, it ensures inclusion of folks across the socioeconomic spectrum, and it will have a positive impact on the community. This will provide an important opportunity for students to complement their classroom learning experiences with intentionally designed work experiences that will help them make a successful transition to their careers,” says Edgewood College President Scott Flanagan.

The program will help students from low income households afford to participate in internships and provide opportunities for historically underrepresented groups to gain relevant work experiences and build connections that will help them transition into future careers. Students will be able to work in a variety of non- and for-profit organizations and local businesses.
