At Furman, internships are considered a part of the academic learning process. You’ll use your internship to gain knowledge and skills by applying your classroom experiences and pursuing your interests.
Three-quarters of our students will intern at least once during their 4 years, and two-thirds will complete more than one internship, which helps accelerate their success post-Furman. You can take advantage of faculty-led internship courses; one-on-one tailored advising with the Internship Office to help explore opportunities that fit your goals and interests; develop resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, prep for interviews and more; apply for our Summer Fellowship Funding process to support unpaid, full-time experiences; and network with our alumni, parents, and friends.
Thanks to a grant from the Freeman Foundation, which is subject to renewal each year, this fellowship provides up to 16 students with an opportunity to intern in Southeast Asia each summer and is available to each class year including graduating seniors. Information regarding the 2023 application process will be announced in Fall 2022. Please note: Furman will not fund travel to countries listed as a Level 4 on the US State Department Travel Advisory. Travel to countries listed as a Level 3 will require students to petition the Office of the Provost.
Students may apply for a fellowship for unpaid or low paid full-time (i.e., 35-40 hours for 8-12 weeks or 280-320 hours over the course of the summer) internships.
