Exciting Opportunities for Students: Two Summer 2024 Internship Funding Sources

Internships play a crucial role in students’ overall development, providing them with practical insights into their chosen field and helping them bridge the gap between academic knowledge and professional application. By participating in internships, students gain valuable skills, industry exposure, and networking opportunities that significantly contribute to their personal and professional growth.

The Career and Professional Education Center (CAPE) is facilitating two separate internship funding sources for summer 2024 internships:

Bengal Internship Award
Deadline: Wednesday, April 17
(CAPE) is once again facilitating the Bengal Internship Award (BIA) created to support students and offset some of the expenses related to unpaid or underpaid internships. Recipients will receive a stipend up to $2,000 to assist with housing, food, transportation, and other incidental costs and expenses. Students who are taking internships during summer 2024 have until April 17 to apply. A full description, eligibility requirements, application, and deadlines can be found on the CAPE website.

CAPE thanks our generous donors, including M&T Bank, Enterprise, and private individuals who have contributed to funding the Bengal Internship Award.

SUNY Incremental Funding for Internships
Deadline: Friday, May 31
Students are eligible to receive up to $1,700. This funding can be used for general living expenses, professional clothing, transportation, and costs associated with housing or rent. This initiative is a testament to SUNY’s commitment to enhancing the educational experience of our students by providing them with real-world, hands-on opportunities that align with their academic and career goals.

Inform Students
If you know of any students who are interested in or are pursuing an internship for summer 2024, please inform them of this opportunity. Students can apply for this funding by completing an online application in Bengal Connect. Applications must be submitted by May 31.

Looking to Host an Intern?
If your office would like to host an intern for summer 2024, please complete this online form. This is a great opportunity to have an undergraduate student work on a special project or initiative. Many of our students do not have access to transportation, so on-campus experiences will ensure that more students have access to this opportunity. Please contact Maureen Huber, associate director of CAPE, with questions.

We are asking for your assistance to support these initiatives.

CAPE is available to help students create their résumé, cover letters, and any other professional documents needed to apply for an internship.

Please contact Denise Harris, director of CAPE, with questions.
