Great Internship/Fellowship Opportunity
From the Young Invincibles Page - Young Invincibles was founded in the summer of 2009 to give young adults (ages 18–34) a voice in the health care debate, and to organize and advocate around one of the most critical issues for our generation. Young Invincibles was integral in pushing for critical reforms, like staying on your parent’s insurance plan to age 26 and greatly improving college health plans. In a little more than a year, ‘YI’ went from a group run out of a law school cafeteria to a national organization.  Now, Young Invincibles is looking for applicants to their summer fellowship program.  Learn more about the program and apply.  If you are interested, you need to hurry.  Applications are only open until April 6th (THIS FRIDAY).

Internship Funding
The Center for Career Development is pleased to offer fellowships for summer internships (up to $2000) to Gettysburg College students. Internships must be at least 160 hours and can be paid or unpaid. High paying internships are not eligible for funding. Paid internships only qualify if living and transportation expenses would be significantly more than the amount the student is paid for internship. Fellowships are intended to cover housing and/or transportation expenses and are not a source of income. If your expenses are significantly lower than $2000 you may want to consider applying for commuting expense funding (see below).

Commuter expense funding. If your commuting costs are prohibitive of your participation in an internship, you can apply for reimbursement for commuting costs such as gas, train tickets, parking etc. Students can apply for up to $200 in reimbursement. Students applying for commuter funding will need to supply receipts to the Center for Career Development during the summer. All receipts must be submitted by September 15 or the charges will no longer be eligible for reimbursement.

Applications for the summer internship fellowship and commuter expense funding are available on our internship funding webpageApplication Deadline:  April 10, 2015
