The Power of Internships
Cortney Smalley will never forget the day he came to Capitol Hill with his first press pass. With support from the LSA Opportunity Hub, Cortney was able to spend the summer in Washington, D.C., not as a wide-eyed tourist, but as a working reporter. Watch the video above to learn more about the impact of his unique opportunity and others like it.
Internships like Cortney’s allow students to pair their LSA education with real-life experience—experience that means the world.

Fund an Internship
Many extraordinary internship opportunities are unpaid. For students, that creates a choice between a summer job to pay bills or offset school expenses and a chance for a life-changing experience. Make a difference in a student’s life today by making a gift to support internships.
