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.
