Are you considering doing an internship as part of your academic program? An internship provides students with an opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom in a professional environment. Frequently the cost of travel and off-campus housing makes it difficult for students to participate in an internship. The Brockport Foundation, Glenn S. Goldberg Scholarship provides $3,000 of assistance to fund full-semester or summer internships. Students considering an internship experience are encouraged to apply (you do not need to have a confirmed internship to apply).
