Denison Internship Program

Overview

Denison Internship Program

The Denison Internship Program (DIP) offers students a structured learning experience as they explore career fields and apply academic coursework to the workplace. Participation in the program provides a three-tiered partnership between students, employers, and The Knowlton Center for Career Exploration. By formulating learning goals at the onset of the internship experience, students are empowered to declare what they hope to learn, achieve, and contribute. Mid-way through the internship experience, students will review their progress towards their goals and near the end of the term, students are prompted to reflect on the experience and craft action steps through a self-evaluation and reflection process. Through the Denison Internship Program, students will earn academic transcript notation for their internship experience, once all requirements are met successfully and approved by the Knowlton Center for Career Exploration.

McMahon Internships

Joseph E. McMahon, Alumnus & Life Trustee, established a series of internship funds named in honor of important persons in his life. These awards are designed to give students with particular academic and career interests the opportunity to pursue summer internships in those areas.

All stipends are $3400. Once students are selected, they must first register their internships with the Knowlton Center for Career Exploration before checks will be issued. Stipends only support full-time, unpaid interns. Low-paid internships are eligible to apply but priority will be given to unpaid interns. Summer terms should total approx. 350-400 hrs. All stipend awards were established by Alumnus & Life Trustee Joseph E. McMahon.
