  1. SSRF Empowering Students Campaign

    Professional internships are pivotal for the career development of college students. Minority, low-income, and first-generation students experience many barriers as students that make it difficult or impossible to take on unpaid internships off-campus. Our goal is to provide these students with paid internships and give them professional experience in the fields of science, engineering, and public policy at SSRF. Donate now to our campaign and help a student succeed. Proceeds go towards our campaign Empowering Students! Help us fund and support non-traditional students through our internship programs.
