Registering an Internship
- For-Credit Internship
Internships taken for academic credit are carefully designed to provide a program with a substantial academic component, as well as practical value. If you are interested in this option, please review Gettysburg College's policies on academic credit and check with your department advisor to learn about department requirements. Once you have been offered and have accepted an internship for credit, you need to login to the Student Center and complete a For-Credit Learning Contract (academic credit Student Center Guide)
- College-Approved Internship
Not for Credit (College-Approved) internships do not carry any academic credit, but do allow students to gain practical experience in a chosen career field. Once you have been offered and have accepted a non-credit internship, you should login to the Student Center and complete a Not for Credit Learning Contract (Student Center Guide).
Summer Internship Deadline
Learning contracts should be submitted through the Student Center prior to starting an internship. Contracts for summer internships must be submitted no later than June 15.
Internship Funding Applications
The Center for Career Development is pleased to offer fellowships up to $2000 to Gettysburg College students for summer internships. 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. If you are applying for a domestic non-profit internship you should apply through the Siebert Non Profit Fellowship link.
Seibert Non-Profit Fellowship. Are you interning for a non-profit this summer? Students completing a 160 hour internship with a US non-profit can apply for funding through the Seibert Fellowship Program. Application processes are similar to the Career Development funding process but funding is set aside for students interested in opportunities in the nonprofit arena. Awardees will be required to submit a one page summary report upon completion of their internship.
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.
