Lawrence N. Field Center

Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship

 

The Weissman Center for International Business and Baruch’s Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship, with support from Ronald I. Heller ’67, have partnered to offer the Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship for Baruch College undergraduates.

 The Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship provides financial assistance to undergraduates who complete an unpaid internship at a startup during the semester, while encouraging them to develop their professional and intercultural skills through programs offered by the Weissman Center for International Business at Baruch College.

An internship provides valuable experience and it is an important stepping stone to a full-time position in a student’s chosen profession.  However, internships are often unpaid, which can be a significant hurdle for students who already are stretched financially.  The fellowship generously offers a $1,250 stipend to help students overcome the financial hurdle of an unpaid internship
