Brock Scholars begin their career early with a subsidized internship during their sophomore year. The Brock Scholars Program provides a $1,500 stipend for each Scholar to intern at a socially mission-driven business. The position matches students' curricular interests and provides academic credit.
For example, Sally Snider ('13) merged her interests of musical performance and business with an internship at the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. Annika Cousins ('12) interned with the Ronald McDonald House. Ben Jones ('12) spent a semester helping Jones Valley Urban Farms develop their education programs and expansion plan. Cameron Collins ('13) followed his interests of entrepreneurship with the widely acclaimed business incubator Innovation Depot.
The internship allows Scholars to begin their professional experience early and prepares them for an international fellowship after their junior year.
