We’re working with a number of employers* who are looking for smart, hard-working summer employees.

Here’s how it works:

WE – contact potential employers and seek their interest in Worthington scholar interns.

YOU – fill out the INTERN INTEREST FORM (email for a copy) and return it to us.

WE – send your application to the internship opportunities whose positions match your areas of interest.  We advise you which businesses have received your information; you contact them for an interview.

EMPLOYERS – Interview and negotiate the terms directly with the employer.

There are still a few positions left.    And…best of all…some of our graduates have been hired by the companies where they interned!

Scholar Overboard Emergency Expense fund now available to Worthington Scholars

At the quarterly board meeting of the Worthington Scholarship Foundation (WSF) held in June, a new program of support for Worthington Scholars was approved and announced. Called the “Scholar Overboard” fund, it exists to help WSF scholars through a rough patch – an unexpected car repair, medical expense, etc. These one-time emergency grants can sometimes make the difference between a student’s ability to remain in college, or to leave. We know that sometimes hidden costs and unexpected financial hurdles can derail a promising student without a financial safety net. These one-time “life rings” are considered and granted through one-on-one consultation between Worthington Scholarship staff and our Scholars. If you are a Worthington Scholar and find yourself in this situation, please contact your WSF mentor.
