Protégé Internship Program

Laurel’s Protégé Internship Program is open to all students in the Upper School. Usually over 60 students complete an internship in a given year, in fields ranging from journalism to neurology to major-event production.

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: 1) internships, which provide opportunities to learn about a specific field by undertaking actual supervised projects in the workplace; or 2) externships, which involve opportunities to shadow professionals in fields such as surgery; or 3) 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.
