Regis College announced today that it received $100,000 from The Flatley Foundation to support its internship program. The Flatley Scholars Program will aid undergraduate students’ participation in off-campus, unpaid internships during the academic year and the summer.
“Regis is committed to our students’ career readiness and this funding will ensure all of our students have access to opportunities that will make them competitive in today’s marketplace,” said Regis President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “I’m very grateful to The Flatley Foundation for their support.”
The Flatley Scholars Program is available to undergraduates who demonstrate financial need. In addition to an application process, students will participate in a preparation class prior to their internship. All Regis undergraduate students complete one internship as a requirement for graduation.
“We want to make sure our students are ready for their next step beyond Regis,” said Susan Kennedy, director of the university’s Center for Internships and Career Development. “We aim to make that transition as seamless as possible by connecting students to employers in their career trajectories. The Flatley Scholars Program will help students better bridge their academics and the working world.”
“We are happy to support Regis’ internship program to bolster the great Catholic education the university provides,” said Trustee Daniel T. Flatley of The Flatley Foundation.
Students interested in the program must attend an orientation sessions on Oct. 12 or Oct. 16. Application is due December 1 for spring semester. For more information, please contact Susan Kennedy:
