F&M Donors Enrich Students' Summers
Recognizing the value of summer experiences and the financial hardship posed by those that are unpaid or underpaid, many generous donors have supported these opportunities for F&M students. Each year OSPGD facilitates processes through which students can apply for funding toward summer internships, research, volunteer, and other experiences that will increase their professional marketability on a trajectory of success.
In spite of the challenges of the global pandemic, our students found creative ways to volunteer, intern, conduct research, and start their own businesses. Their experiences are captured throughout this site via presentations and slides.View student experiences
