Today, the Wells College Internship Program is widely known for our variety of placements as well as the quality of work our students produce.  Every major requires two internships or hands-on experiences in order to graduate.  What you do is completely up to you! 

Internship sites this past year spanned 22 states and 5 countries, including the following types of organizations:

  • Public and private schools
  • History museums
  • Art museums
  • Federal, state and local governments
  • Not-for-profits
  • Environmental organizations
  • Hospitals
  • Veterinary clinics
  • Theaters
  • Private businesses

Many students have received job offers and graduate school acceptances because of the excellent and varied real world experiences gained through the Internship Program.

Recipients of the Henry Wells Scholarship receive a guaranteed first-year internship during Wells' January Intersession, a $3,000 stipend to spend on an six-week experiential learning opportunity in your junior year, and up to $25,000 each year in tuition scholarship.
