Pathfinder Start-up Internship Fund

Innovation skills and an entrepreneurial mindset are built by diving in and practicing. The Pathfinder Internships Scholarship Fund makes it possible for current undergraduate students to accept unpaid internships at start-ups and growing companies.

In 2023, the Pathfinder Internships Scholarship Fund will provide a limited number of $8,000 stipends to support U.S.-based summer internships offered to BU undergraduates.

Applications are due March 20, 2023.

Applicants will be notified of their status by March 31.

“I really liked that a lot of my projects were about UX and how the website is designed. This linked up well with my interest in branding strategy and confirmed it’s the path I want to take.”

“This job made me a better communicator because if I was responsible for a presentation on a possible client, it was up to me to know all the facts and information about the company.”
