What is an Academic Internship at Clark?

An academic internship is a credit-bearing, career-related work experience of limited duration in which an individual takes on responsible roles outside of the traditional university environment. Academic internships may take place in a non-profit organization, government office, or for-profit business. Depending on the employer, some internships are paid. Internships include mentoring and supervision by a professional in the field - this valuable form of training allows students to explore their career interests.

Rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors may earn academic credit for internships during the fall, spring or summer terms. 

Note: Graduate students do not use this application process; instead, they work with their academic departments to obtain credit.

The Fall 2019 application for the Academic Internship Program (AIP) is now open. Please review ALL materials below to have an in depth understanding of the process. Note that the deadline for this application is AUGUST 28, 2019.
