Wellesley College Internships are funded internships with organizations who consistently offer opportunities to Wellesley students for intern placement. These internship hosts are leading cultural, educational, and scientific institutions; international agencies; media outlets; advocacy and community organizations; and businesses both within the United States and in countries around the world.

Every internship is different. While some placements require a higher level of initiative, autonomy, or definitive project proposals at the beginning of the internship, others are structured to allow their interns the opportunity to explore a greater variety of ways to interact with the organization. In addition to placement with a vetted host, interns from each internship program are engaged through a unique curriculum, career education training, and mentorship for the duration of their work experiences.
