Signing up as an externship sponsor requires a short term commitment, typically two days during the students' Winter Break, mid-December to mid-January. Externship hosts can set the dates or arrange them with the student match.

During the externship, you are asked to provide your student(s) with:

  1. an itinerary for the experience (samples in the handbook and below)
  2. an overview of your industry
  3. a glimpse into the world of work

Please contact Emily Dietrich at edietric@bucknell.edu or 570.577.1238 with questions.

Getting Started

Sample Itineraries

Here are five different samples of itineraries used by past externship sponsors. Not all sponsors will have an hour by hour itinerary for the externship. That is ok. However, the sponsor should inform the student of what he or she will see or do during the externship. (Sample itineraries are Word Documents. Feel free to tailor them to your needs.)


Hosts are asked to evaluate the program and the student(s) after the externship.

  • Online evaluation form will be sent to all Externship Hosts.
