Philanthropy at its Finest

Ten Lasell University students received summer internship stipends of $3,000 each as part of an annual award program established by an anonymous donor and Lasell University trustee. The donor provided funding for five student awards, and the University matched the amount for the remaining selected interns.

Each of the recipients completed their major's required internship and affiliated course over the summer. Internship locations included Orange Veterinary Hospital in Orange, Connecticut; Albright Fashion Library in Beverly Hills, California; Mystic Schooners Baseball Team in Mystic, Connecticut; and The Boys and Girls Club of New Bedford, Massachusetts.

"The stipend helped me cover the cost of housing and transportation in Los Angeles," said Hannah Bowerman, a senior fashion design and production major from Raleigh, North Carolina. 

"I would not have been able to afford this opportunity [at the Albright Fashion Library] without this funding," she said.

Amanda Miller, a junior psychology major from New Bedford, Massachusetts, was able to pursue an internship at her local Boys and Girls Club without the worry of paying out-of-pocket for the internship course.

"As a first-generation college student paying for my own education, having this stipend gave me an opportunity without any financial burden," she said.

Internship stipends are being offered again for summer 2020, with applications opening in late fall. Interested students should email internships@lasell.edu for more information.
