The Bucknell Public Interest Program (BPIP) enjoys the collaboration of alumni, parents, faculty, and administrators working together to educate students about careers in the nonprofit and public service sectors. We support programming that gives students opportunities to learn about these sectors with events offered throughout the academic year and into the summer.

BPIP Internship Fund

The BPIP Internship Fund is a competitive summer internship program that provides $3,000 scholarship to selected undergraduate students who have secured unpaid internships in the nonprofit, and public service sectors.

Be a BPIP Mentor

Mentors are essential to the success of this program. A mentor will be expected to:

  • Get in touch with your Intern as soon as possible.
  • Keep in touch with your Intern on a regular basis, particularly at the beginning of the Internship.
  • Talk to your Intern about his/her work situation.
