❗ Important Notes:

  • Employers accepting applications on a rolling basis begin interviewing candidates immediately. Apply early to these opportunities.
  • Eligibility for Summer Internships is often based on your graduation year. For example, a program seeks students for the summer after junior year.
  • Some employers may offer diversity recruitment programs aimed to address historical gaps in the workforce, and students are encouraged to research those programs to learn more.

➡ If you are an undergrad who has been asked by your employer to provide a letter of support for the internship, a letter regarding Yale’s policy on academic credit for internships, or if you want to learn more about PRAC 471 Practicum Fieldwork Analysis, please read our Academic Credit & Letters of Support page.

➡ Other applications may require a transcript. Usually, a Self-reported Grade Sheet is sufficient. If you need an official transcript, you’ll need to request one from the Registrar.
