The Shattuck Family Internship Program
The Shattuck Family Internship Program for Entrepreneurship Innovation and Social Change prepares UMBC students for the rigors and rewards of entrepreneurship and social innovation. This program places highly-motivated students from diverse backgrounds in mentored internships to better prepare them to launch start-up or nonprofit ventures. Students get training and experience to empower them to become the next generation of entrepreneurs or nonprofit leaders.
Internships last one semester (15 weeks) and students will work, on average, 8 to 10 hours per week. Students receive a stipend of $1,500 toward their compensation. In addition to the internship, students engage in projects and activities that further expose them to the social entrepreneurial mindset. Students will be placed in an internship based on their career interests and in consultation with the Career Services Center.
UMBC established the Alex. Brown Center for Entrepreneurship in Spring 2000 through a generous gift of $1 million from The Alex. Brown Foundation. UMBC has worked closely with the Baltimore business community and UMBC faculty and staff with one vision in mind—to create a leading center for university entrepreneurism. UMBC’s entrepreneurial spirit, dynamic and diverse academic environment, commitment to excellence in research and education, and experience in economic development provide a strong platform for creating and supporting entrepreneurism in the region.
