Laurel’s Protégé Internship Program is open to all students in the Upper School. Over 60 students complete an internship in a typical year, in fields ranging from journalism to neurology to major-event production.
The Protégé Program
We work with each student in the program to determine her areas of interest then build a Protégé Internship around/in that area of interest. Students are placed in one of three types of positions:
INTERNSHIPS, which provide opportunities to learn about a specific field by undertaking actual supervised projects in the workplace
EXTERNSHIPS, which involve opportunities to shadow professionals in fields such as surgery
RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIPS, which provide opportunities to work on actual research projects in science, medical and social-science research labs.
These out-of-school learning experiences may occur during the school year or during the summer.
