Summer Opportunities

What will I do next summer?

Summers are a critical time to gain valuable experience outside the classroom to enrich your academic training. As early as the summer after your first year, you should be engaging with the issues you are most passionate about through research, internships, study abroad, or civic engagement.

  • Research
  • Study Abroad
  • Language Study
  • Internships
  • Civic Engagement
  • Pre-Health preparation

How do I find out about opportunities?

You should talk to as many people as possible in your search. This guide is a start, but often you will learn about the opportunities that are best suited to your goals through conversations with faculty, advisors, fellow students, or SU alums. Faculty mentors and department offices are excellent resources for learning about potential opportunities in your field. Seek the assistance of the advising and career offices in your home college at SU as well.

It’s important to start early and stay organized! Depending on your field, you should begin your search as early as September. Many applications for summer opportunities are due in December, January, and February. Keep a list or spreadsheet to track your applications and their components – you’ll be producing many resumes, cover letters, and personal statements. You may also need letters of recommendation from faculty members and remember that you must request these no later than six weeks in advance of the deadline.

But how will I pay for it?

Many students must work during the summer, but some of these opportunities might be fully or partially funded. You may also need to balance a paying job with volunteering or research. Read further for details about specific programs or funding opportunities.

Need help?

We’re here to help with advising sessions for assistance on your essays and other application materials.  Bring drafts for comments, or talk about where to start.  Contact Jolynn Parker (jmpark02@syr.edu).
