• Students in Internships

    Honors Internship Program

    Give students their first big break.

  • LaGuardia Community College students have what employers are looking for. They are smart and hardworking. They have character and grit. Most are bilingual and have a good foundation of business and communication skills.

    What they don’t have are the opportunities or connections to secure essential internships. Our Honors Internship Program not only connects underserved students to prestigious, competitive internships — but also provides them a Foundation-paid stipend to defray living expenses during the time of their internship.

    This approach — access plus financial support — provides students a chance at building the professional skills and networks they will need to succeed after graduation.
