Honors FYI: Albany Internship Program

The application deadline has been extended to Friday, March 10th for the six
week Albany Internship Experience (AIE) Summer Program.  The program is open to all majors, but students in Communications, Criminal Justice, English, Environmental Studies, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology are ideally suited to benefit from the AIE Summer Program.  The 6 week AIE Summer Program runs from May 22-June
30th, 2017.

The AIE summer program internship placements include advocacy groups,
lobbying firms, nonprofit organizations, and state agency offices matching student interest.

AIE Summer Interns work at their placements 4 days a week for 6 weeks,
earning 3 course credits, and meet weekly with the AIE Director, Dr. Krista
Applebee, for internship-in-context sessions, career development workshops,
and networking events with guest speakers.  If students wish to take
additional classes, online Marist summer courses are available at a
discounted rate in a variety of disciplines.

The total program costs are $3000, including tuition, a program fee, and
housing. Students pay Marist College directly and transfer the
3 internship course credits back to Ithaca College.  In addition,
students who live in the Albany area can participate in the AIE Summer
Program as a commuting student at a cost of $2200.

Students live in fully furnished 4-bedroom apartments in University Heights, a complex centrally located in Albany’s academic quadrangle. Apartments include free Wi-fi and parking.

Additional information, including application forms, may be
found at the Albany Internship Experience website.
