3.18.14 Please note the following announcement from the President's office:

 As you may have heard, President Paxson has made internships and related opportunities one of her top priorities. I'm pleased to provide an update on our progress and alert you to upcoming deadlines.  
  • Increased opportunities. Thanks to the leadership of a Presidential Advisory Council on Internships, led by Andrea Terzi Baum '83 P'15 P'18 and Genine Fidler '77 P'04 P'12, a pilot phase of outreach generated 76 new internship opportunities for the Brown Job and Internship Board (JIB).  In total, there are currently 555 internships open for applications on the JIB.
  • Increased funding.  Thanks to generous alumni donations, we are increasing the number of LINK awards for low-paid/unpaid internships by nearly 60%, to well over 200; and almost quadrupling the number of summer earnings waivers for LINK recipients on financial aid! (See application deadlines below.)  The amount of summer UTRAs will also increase to $3500 starting this year, and we are offering 270 summer awards, an increase of 50 from last year.
  • Increased alumni networking.  This summer, the Advisory Council, Alumni Relations, and the CareerLAB are teaming up to organize summer networking events in Providence, Boston, NYC, LA and San Francisco.
Upcoming deadlines:
If you are still unsure about your plans for the summer, I urge you to meet soon with one of the advisors in CareerLAB. Information about appointments and walk-in hours can be found on the CareerLAB website.

Stay tuned for more developments next academic year!
