Internship Program

Point’s Internship Program provides Point Scholars
with meaningful, professional-related work experience.

Academic preparation meets career aspirations
Scholars can intern with a variety of organizations and corporations that are dedicated to furthering and bettering the LGBTQ community.

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.

Additional support for internships has been provided by some of Point’s corporate partners such as NBCUniversal, Johnson & Johnson, Viacom, and Coda Leadership.

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.
