Through the Center for Career and Community Engagement, Earlham is able to offer Richmond Residency internship funding, which gives students the opportunity to work with non-profit organizations in the Richmond and Whitewater Valley area.
Internships that qualify for Richmond Residency funding include a range of professional opportunities in structured environments, allowing students to apply their knowledge gained in the classroom to real-world projects. Once selected, Richmond Residency interns participate in all aspects of the Earlham Internship Program, including orientation, reflection assignments during the internship, and a poster presentation of learning the following Fall semester.
The Richmond Residency program is donor-funded and a great option for students seeking their first internship experience.
