Whether you have an job, internship or externship opportunity to share or want to educate young people about your career and industry, we can connect you with an incredible group of talented, passionate and dedicated students.

Non-profit, Government or Public Service Internships

If you work with a non-profit, government or public-interest organization, get involved with the Bucknell Public Interest Program (BPIP). This program offers financial support for students who take on unpaid internships in the nonprofit and public service sectors during the summer.

We seek help from alumni both in sharing internship opportunities that may qualify for a BPIP stipend as well as in reviewing applications from students and selecting qualified candidates.
