Help CAS students become career-ready
Experiential learning opportunities are crucial in preparing College of Arts and Sciences students for their chosen professional path.
Internships, lab research positions, field camps: these are just a few examples of hands-on opportunities that help students connect their time in the classroom to the professional world. Preparation is key to achieving long-term career goals. Hands-on learning opportunities help students strengthen their professional skills, explore their chosen career path, network with others in their field, and give themselves an edge in the job market.
Give to the CAS Hands-On Learning Fund
The College of Arts and Sciences created the CAS Hands-On Learning Fund to make hands-on learning experiences available to as many students as possible. Often these opportunities can be costly in travel, lodging, and loss of salary from summer jobs. Many of these positions are unpaid, creating additional strain – especially for students with financial need.
The fund will provide stipends up to $5,000 for CAS students who need additional financial assistance to pursue a hands-on learning opportunity.
Your gift could help provide:
· A one-month Metro pass in Seattle ($63)
· A new professional outfit for a student ($100)
· A plane ticket for a student interning across the country (approximately $500)
· 12 credit hours of summer tuition for Internship for Credit: UGST404 ($1,800)
· A field research internship ($2,500)
· A full summer stipend for an internship with a non-profit ($5,000)
