Point’s Internship Program provides Point Scholars
with meaningful, professional-related work experience.
Academic preparation meets career aspirations
One of the key partners of Point’s internship program is The Palette Fund, which makes it possible for Point to provide stipends for scholars undertaking an internship. This support means that the LGBTQ community nonprofits where scholars are interning do not have to incur any costs for having a gifted student help them.
If you have paid internship opportunities that you would like to make available to Point Scholars, please contact Point’s Scholarship Programs Manager Emma Nuiry.
