As a refresher, City Internships (CI) provides immersive experiential education programs for college students and recent graduates.

Our Global Explorer Program centers around an internship placement with a leading company, accompanied by a comprehensive series of classes, workshops and networking events optimized to enhance a student's commercial skills and employability.

More than 65% of CI alumni go on to accept permanent graduate positions with their host company. Moreover, our annual Student Outcomes survey shows that CI alumni secure graduate employment 3 times more quickly and earn 30% than their peers immediately after college.

The program is open to undergraduate students (including seniors). Students may choose a program in one of 12 cities globally, with an internship in one of 9 career fields.

I have included additional information at the foot of this email pertaining to:

i. Q1 Scholarship Contest: Do you know a deserving student?

ii. Education Partnerships: Join our existing partners for 2017/18.

Our application process for our 2017 Fall programs launch next week; I will provide an invitation for your students at the beginning of next week.

Best wishes,

Lewis

i. City Internships Scholarship Contest. Voting is open.

We’re moving ahead in our Q1 Scholarship Contest with entries to the Virtual Investment Portfolio and Entrepreneurship verticals of the contest.

Sadly, entries to the Marketing & Advertising and Design verticals have been lacking. We’re doing our best to award two additional scholarships to deserving, career-minded students, and it appears we can’t give them away!

Consequently, we are offering an extension of two weeks to give your students the opportunity to submit their entry. Contest winners will each receive a fully sponsored place on a Global Explorer Program in a city of their choosing in summer 2017.

If you know a student that deserves a scholarship for the Global Explorer Program this summer, please share this update.

Students can learn more online: blog.city-internships.com/ci-q1-2017-scholarships-contest-announcement/

And submit their entry to competitions@city-internships.com
