funding to helpmake thempossible for students on both campuses.
These internship programs—ARIEL (Award for Relating Intense
Education to Life) in Santa Fe andHodson in Annapolis—provide
merit-based stipends for substantial, full-time internships each
summer. Interested students identify an internship opportunity,
either with the help of Career Services or on their own, and submit a
proposal for consideration. Selected students receive a stipend award
and present a report on their experience at the end of the summer.
ARIEL and Hodson internships have helped students
gain experience in everything from public service to the arts and
sciences. Some students receive multiple internship awards. One
recently worked in a laboratory at the City of Hope Cancer Center in
Los Angeles one year and at the University of Chicago Evolutionary
Ecology Laboratories’ Krietman Lab the next. Another held an
internship as a rock-climbing guide near Bend, Oregon, while others
have been awarded stipends to work at an Army hospital in rural
Alaska, at an organic farm in Iowa, with the Legal Aid Society in
New York City, and at the National Institutes of Health inMaryland.
With the experience and insight that internships offer, there may
be no better complement to a St. John’s education.
