Eighteen Lasell University students are receiving a $3,000 stipend through the support of Lasell donors to finish internships that would have been unpaid otherwise. With the help of the stipends, Lasell students can network professionally, build their resumes, and pursue job options.

The students are seeking internships in a variety of fields, such as:

  • Health Science: Ashley Durall '26 is employed by Boston Children's Hospital as a pediatric anesthesia clinical and research intern. “I am incredibly excited for my internship. This is an amazing opportunity that will provide me with valuable knowledge and experience for my future career in healthcare.”

  • Sport Management: Marcus Lewis ’25 is interning as sports coordinator at Ballers Elite Basketball. “Through this opportunity, I will learn how to operate and manage the different sports and activities that are in place. This will help me network in various ways and provide me with professional skills for my career moving forward.”

  • Sport Communication: Elliot Pototsky '25 is the baseball communications and operations intern at The Futures Collegiate Baseball League. “I am excited for my internship with The Futures League this summer. It will be an awesome opportunity to learn from Joshua Kummins, a 2017 Lasell graduate who serves as league administrator and director of public relations, and I am thrilled to be working in the baseball industry.”

  • Biology: Emma Turney ’26 is a herpetology collection intern at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University. “The various skills and knowledge this experience provides will better prepare me for my future career. I will learn how to utilize databases and other vital research, develop lab work skills, and gain in-depth exposure to a variety of amphibians and reptiles. I deeply appreciate this generosity and look forward to sharing this experience with the greater Lasell community when I return.”

  • Criminal Justice: Jahiris Velez-Polo ’25 will have an internship at the Boston Police Department. “The skills, experience, and professional connections that I will acquire during this internship will prove extremely valuable to me in the pursuit of my dream career.”

Lasell's dedication to Connected Learning - the university's fundamental tenet of "learning by doing" - is exemplified by the summer internship stipend program. Through internships, students put the theories and skills they've learned in the classroom to use in real-world scenarios and develop professional networks that will help start their careers.
