Introducing the Bengal Internship Award

The Career Development Center is proud to announce the creation of the Bengal Internship Award (BIA), a new initiative to help break down financial barriers for our students. The BIA was created to support students and offset some of the expenses related to unpaid or underpaid internships. Recipients will receive a stipend to assist with housing, food, transportation, and other incidental costs and expenses. Students starting internships in summer 2022 and beyond will have the opportunity to apply for the BIA. A full description and the eligibility requirements, application, and deadlines can be found on the CDC website.

To fund the Bengal Internship Award, the Career Development Center was selected to participate in Buffalo State’s annual Day of Giving, being held March 16 and 17.
