Dietrich Pittsburgh Summer Internship
As the 2019-20 academic year comes to a close, many Dietrich students have begun to think about their summer internship plans and how they can make a difference in their community. Dietrich College’s Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program matches students with local non-profit or startup organizations, many of which have been directly impacted by COVID-19, and helps them begin to recover and continue to serve the greater Pittsburgh community.
What is the Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program?
The Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program will provide 60 student participants this summer with a minimum stipend of $3,000 for a part-time, 8-10 week summer internship. Dietrich College faculty and staff are in constant communication over the summer, providing professional and personal guidance, in addition to building a sense of community among the student cohort. A few of the 50+ participating organizations this summer include Just Harvest, City of Pittsburgh Department of Human Resources and Civil Services, Footbridge for Families, Pittsburgh Hispanic Development Corporation, and Wilkinsburg Community Ministry.
Impact of your support
You can help us make a difference in the lives of our students and help them affect positive change as they work with local non-profit and startup organizations. As the impact of COVID-19 continues to affect the CMU and Pittsburgh communities, it is crucial that supplemental resources for housing, meals, and transportation be available to eliminate barriers to students participating in these internships. By making these funds available to our student participants, the Dietrich College can ensure that they have the necessary tools and resources, allowing them to participate fully in real-world experiences that propel their education forward and help begin to heal the communities they live in.
