Molly Allen Watson spent her summer at Colorado's Central City Opera Company. As an intern, Watson made props and furniture. She was most proud of a spinning wheel. "I actually made it work. That was my hardest project." Watson recommends internships. "It's imperative. It's so different from an educational environment. The University should require it for all majors. It's application in the real world."

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or see your academic advisor.
