The Westfield State Experience  Summer Internship Program

The Westfield State Foundation, the College of Graduate and Continuing Education and Academic Affairs have teamed up to provide a new Summer Internship  Program.  A decision on funding for Summer 2019 will be made early semester.

  • Eligible undergraduates who are approved for an internship experience in their academic department will be able to apply for funding for the summer course credit fees.
  • Students can apply for a three to six credit internship at a course credit cost of $100.
