Brooklyn College students can benefit from stipends that can provide them resources for successful internship positions. More than 40% of internships are unpaid, so our students often rely on competitive stipends. But only 32% of colleges provide stipends to students. At Brooklyn College, over $700,000 in stipend funds have been awarded to more than 400 students in the past 10 years thanks to our generous sponsors. Here are some testimonies from our own students who successfully interned with the help of a stipend:

  • “I literally cried when I opened your e-mail this morning. I cannot tell you how much this scholarship means to my family and me. Thank you so so much!!!!!”
  • “I divorced my abusive husband and was left with nothing. With four kids, all by myself, I have been struggling to keep a roof over our heads, provide for our basic needs, and my tuition. Given my financial situation, I cannot do an internship without a stipend since I need the money to offset the financial costs.”
  • “My father passed away, and my mother is not able to work anymore. Therefore, my three brothers and I have part-time jobs (while being full-time students) to provide for the family. If I take the internship, I won’t be able to work. I am not sure how my family would cope with the loss of one extra salary.”
