Internship Success Stories

Glyn Helen Vandenberg"I'm currently a senior Hospitality and Resort Management major. During my Junior year, I successfully completed a position as a marketing intern with the Brooks Museum's marketing department. It was an incredible chance to view the inside workings of a non-profit museum and get to know about and be involved with the events they presented. This past summer, I was afforded the opportunity to participate in an amazing internship program through the University of Memphis. This program, called The Washington Center for Internships (TWC), set me up with multiple internships from which I was able to choose which offer I wanted to accept based on my interests. TWC set up all the students participating in an apartment in Washington, D.C. where we either walked to or commuted via Metro to work during the business week and we were left to our own musings after work hours and on the weekends! I chose to work as a development intern with the Trust for the National Mall and gained invaluable experience inside a small but powerful non-profit, working with politicians, business leaders, and national planners. With one year left until I graduate, I'm trying to gain access to as many opportunities as are still available to me. Recently I was awarded an internship in Vermont at the Ascutney Mountain Resort, an Orange Lake Resort. I will be rotating throughout all aspects of the hotel operation and enjoying my time in the mountains!"

Summer Academic Internships

Internships through the Summer Access and Diversity Internship Program will not be available for Summer 2013.



When possible, the University of Memphis Scholarship Committee provides funding for undergraduate summer internships under the Student Affairs Access/Diversity Support Awards. These funds helped to provide students with an opportunity for summer internships both on the University campus as well as with non-profit community partners.

In addition to a stipend, students will receive academic credit for the internship.  Interested students should apply for the program by contacting Jodie Cherry at 678-3448 or jmcherry@memphis.edu or see your academic advisor.
