Frequently Asked Questions

What if my application for funding is not selected but I am still interested in hiring Earlham students for an internship?

You are always welcome to post internship and post-graduation employment opportunities in Handshake for our students to view and apply for. Since all Earlham students have access to funding for unpaid or underpaid internships through the EPIC Advantage program and can decide when to utilize this funding, they may determine that your internship opportunity is the right one for them even if it is unpaid.

If my organization is unable to contribute any funds to an internship, are we still able to apply?

Yes! You are able to list your contribution amount as $0 and will be provided with space to explain why full funding is necessary and warranted.

 If I am selected for participation in the program am I guaranteed an intern?

While we will make every effort to advertise this program and your internship to students we cannot guarantee the number of application for each open position.

What can I (the employer) do to attract a good fit candidate pool?

There are a few things you can do to help attract a good fit candidate pool:

  1. Spend time crafting a detailed and engaging job description; one that gets students excited about the opportunity.  If you need help with this please contact our office at
  2. Get your job posted early in the recruiting cycle.  Waiting until the last minute means that many students may have already secured another opportunity.
  3. Make sure to attend the Be the Change: Internship & Post Graduate Opportunity Fair to connect directly with students.
  4. Use your connections! Reach out to former interns, volunteers, and/or work-study students and ask them to help you recruit new students.  Additionally, if you have relationships with Earlham faculty ask them for recommendations for students to connect with.

How long is my approved application valid for?

Approved applications are valid for the upcoming summer only.
