Internship Success Stories

Andrea PietrzykEntering my senior year as an International Studies major, I wanted a unique learning experience that would both reinforce what I had already learned and teach me to apply it beyond the classroom. Through the Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars, I obtained an internship with Bridging Nations, a think-tank dealing with US-India relations. Through the many tasks I was given - interviewing South Asia experts, listening to White House conference calls, setting up panel discussions on terrorism - I more than accomplished my goals. My semester as an intern was certainly a turning point in my studies, as I learned how to transition myself from student to professional.

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.
