Programs You Can Help Support Directly
The Internship Fund
The Binghamton University Internship Fund allows students with financial needs to apply for up to $5,000 to offset the costs associated with completing unpaid summer internships. The Fund grants access to valuable, hands-on experiences all over the world that students could not otherwise afford.
In the summer of 2016:
- 44 students were awarded funds
- Amounts ranged: $4,500 - $3,950
- Students gained valuable hands-on experience in many fields, including healthcare, finance, government, criminal justice, social services, communication, media and biomedical research.
The annual goal is to double the number of students with unpaid internships who receive funding through this program.
New York City Employer Site Visits
Every year, career partner offices at Binghamton University work together to host Employer Site Visits with students in New York City.
The NYC Employer Site Visits are designed for students to enhance their professional education, explore various work environments and industries, learn about career opportunities, make connections and expand their professional networks. Employers from a variety of industries are selected to give students a broad range of opportunities to explore.
A typical visit lasts two hours and consists of an employer presentation and information session, panel of employees, company tour, Q&A, and opportunities to network with alumni and other professionals.
Washington, DC Employer Site Visits
The Washington, DC Employer Site Visit program provides students an opportunity to expand their networks, explore employers and gain insights about transitioning to the workplace, all in a unique and historical city.
Over the course of three days, select Binghamton University students will visit DC Metro employers from various industries. Each visit typically includes an employer presentation, tour of facility, Q&A and networking opportunities.
The program helps students learn more about careers in DC, polish professional development skills, and develop a sense of how to stand out from their peers.
Connections for Success
The Connections for Success program engages sophomore students in conversations and helps them expand their professional development and leadership skills. Sophomore year is the ideal time to begin considering potential career paths and internships to prepare for these careers.
Students chosen for this program are invited to participate in a selective weekend professional development retreat. This retreat is led by alumni, employers, staff and student mentors who have previously participated in the retreat. These sessions prepare students with the tools necessary to be competitive applicants for internships, jobs and life beyond Binghamton University.
