January 2023 SPEC 21 Career Exploration: Winter Study Internships!  Imagine your Winter Study adventure!

Live SPEC 21 Winter Study Internship List January 2023  Updated 9/24/2022

Internships amplify academic learning, empower professional development, and increase students’ career options. SPEC 21 offers students the opportunity to learn beyond the classroom by providing substantive applied learning experiences focusing on issues such as racial justice/social justice, non-profit/community service, government/policy/law, environment, education & many more! 

Williams College Alumni/Parents and other employers will be recruited as Winter Study (WS) Internship Sponsors and create meaningful projects/experiences during the month of January. It is expected that our WS Sponsors will mentor the Williams intern(s) during the course, meet with intern(s) on a regular basis to discuss projects/goals/challenges for the week, and support students’ success.

The Deadline to submit applications for the Live SPEC 21 Winter Internship List-January 2023 and Student Self-Sourced Winter Internships via Handshake is Sunday, October 16th at 11:55 p.m.
