“The Royal Experience Summer Internship Program allowed me to pursue my passion in Charlotte." - Mark Miller, junior

The Royal Experience Summer Internship Program wrapped up its second year with 15 students completing internships in a variety of locations and industries. Students completed 200-hour unpaid internships over the course of 8-12 weeks this summer, and they each received a stipend of $1,000 to $4,000. The Royal Experience is a selective opportunity that awards stipends to The University of Scranton undergraduates who obtain internships with organizations that are not able to provide a salary or stipend. By eliminating financial barriers, this program allows students to explore their career interests, gain new skills, and experience the world of work.


Students checked in with the Center for Career Development throughout the summer, and each wrote two blog posts about their experiences. Blogs can be viewed here

The experiences students had were amazing and varied, interning in locations from Scranton to Singapore and in industries from business to physical therapy to forensic chemistry to government. Mark Miller, a junior Marketing and Business Administration major, interned at Speedway Motorsports in Charlotte, NC this summer. “The Royal Experience Summer Internship Program allowed me to pursue my passion in Charlotte. During my internship, I was able to meet critical people in the industry that I want to work in after graduation,” Mark said.


Interns honed their skills, had the opportunity to build their professional networks, and gained valuable experience in their fields. For more information about the Royal Experience Summer Internship Program, please visit our webpage
