Internships

This Summer, the Windward Network is offering virtual internships and other experiential learning opportunities! Internships offered through the Windward Network provide meaningful Summer experiences for current students (rising Juniors and Seniors) and college-age alumni in a variety of different fields. Participants have the opportunity to gain valuable insights into their industries of interest, develop skills, cultivate professional connections, and strengthen their resumes.
 

Any currently enrolled student who completes an internship organized through the Windward Network and the required reflection at the culmination of the internship will receive course credit documented on their transcript. This course credit will be graded as Pass/Fail and in the amount of 0.5 credits, and will be awarded for the semester preceding the internship.

For college-age students (including the Class of 2021), you are responsible for coordinating course credit through your university.
