BPIP (Bucknell Public Interest Program)

BPIP was established to give students the opportunity to learn about careers in the nonprofit and public service sectors.

There are two main ways you can volunteer:

  1. On-campus and off-campus programs allow you to share your expertise in government and nonprofits. To inquire about opportunities, email
  2. The BPIP Internship Fund provides a stipend for selected undergraduates who have secured a full-time and unpaid summer internship with a nonprofit or public service organization. Recipients are matched with mentors who help guide them about the world of work and the student’s particular industry. Let us know if you’re interested in mentoring a BPIP Internship Fund recipient for the summer.

Internships & Full-Time Opportunities

Willing and able to offer internships (both paying and nonpaying) or full-time opportunities to Bucknell students? Internship listings will be publicized to students and participating employers will have three choices: collecting resumes and scheduling a follow up on-campus interview, collecting resumes and inviting qualified candidates on-site for interviews (resume referrals) or online job listings that instruct the students to contact the employer directly.
