Funding for W&M internships and applied learning increased tenfold
In February 2023, a new $1-million gift supporting career development at William & Mary was announced that triples the number of students annually who can receive university funding for internships and other applied learning opportunities and substantially increases the amount of the individual grants available, starting in Summer 2023.
The two-year commitment by W&M Foundation trustee Darpan Kapadia ’95 to the Career Center Student Internship Fund is the largest gift in the university’s history that directly supports internships. The gift will allow at least 100 undergraduates per year to receive up to $5,000 each for unpaid or underpaid applied learning experiences in 2023 and 2024. Over the two years, the gift multiplies by 10 the amount of available funding, paving the way for a sustained increase in the years ahead.
Located in the Cohen Career Center, our office is between the Sadler Center and Zable Stadium on Stadium Drive.
We are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
