University of the Virgin Islands’ Student Affairs: Albert A. Sheen and Orville E. Kean Campuses Launches “Paid Internship Program”

The University of the Virgin Islands, Division of Student Affairs on both campuses are working with Ascendium’s Project Success to offer paid internship opportunities for students to complete their course requirements for graduation. The program will be administered through the Office of Student Employment, collectively, with the University’s schools and colleges to provide paid opportunities for students enrolled in student teaching, clinical, and internships beginning the Summer of 2021.   

The goal is to create a meaningful work experience, increase job opportunities post-graduation, and help students with financial difficulties to participate in unpaid internships. Students will be paid a competitive salary for a maximum of 150 hours. Time and attendance will be entered and tracked by the administrative support team for each school and college. “Working collaboratively with all the academic school and colleges, will guarantee that the paid internship program meets its goals of providing that much-needed work experience for our students before they embark upon their career path after graduation”, noted Dean Finch-Simpson.
