The Public Service Consulting Corps provides a select group of students the opportunity to take part in a unique academic year-long internship experience at a non-profit. By participating in the program, students will receive up to $1000 scholarship each semester and will have the opportunity to develop and enhance their professional development skills, as well as expand their professional network.
As part of the Corps, students will receive support from an on-site supervisor, and they will also meet with an Office for Community Engagement Advisor on campus on a bi-weekly basis. Additionally, all Corps members will come together on the last Wednesday of every month from 6:30pm to 7:30pm to network, share their experiences, and reflect on their learning.
To become a member of the Corps, students must apply, interview, and be selected by an internship host site. All selected students will then be required to attend an internship kick-off/on-campus training session.
