Other College &
Employer-Sponsored Internships

(through Academic Departments, uniquely-Wellesley programs, and Employer Partners)

Wellesley Career Education collaborates with various academic departments and other employer-sponsored programs to offer internship placements and programs for Wellesley students. By partnering on these opportunities, it is our hope that all Wellesley students will have access to at least one college-sponsored internship before graduating.

Eligibility & Application

Eligibility, program structure/award amounts, and application requirements vary by opportunity, so please review the application information carefully. Most opportunities (except Libera in the Italian Department and Slade in Art Department) require students to work a minimum 300 hours over 8-10 weeks. All eligible students must be enrolled at the College in Spring 2022 or in a study abroad program (one semester or full-year). Students on leave for the spring semester are ineligible

Please note that some departments offer more than one opportunity (e.g., Davis Museum, English, Italian, Jewish Studies, Peace & Justice). You can apply for multiple opportunities—within and across departments—at the same time but you may be asked to submit separate distinct applications in Workday (e.g., Signature Internships) or multiple cover letters, essays, or Statements of Intent (e.g., English, Peace and Justice, Italian, Davis Museum), so please follow the instructions carefully. If awarded multiple College-funded summer internships, you will need to select only one opportunity.

You can apply to all internship opportunities by logging into the “My Wellesley” portal here and selecting “Workday” and “Find a Summer Internship.” Use these Workday application instructions to guide you. Please note that applications will only be visible in Workday during the two application cycles.

While required application materials vary for each opportunity per this list, all application materials must be submitted as a PDF and named according to this format: YourName_DocumentType (e.g., TrinHan_CoverLetter; SallyBaez_Resume).

 

Summer Pathway and Internship Credit

If selected for one of these College-funded opportunities, you will also be eligible to receive non-academic internship credit on your transcript. You must also complete Hive Pathway exercises throughout the summer (e.g., Goal setting, Pre-internship Paperwork, Reflections). You’ll receive more Pathway information from Career Education in May.
