Pomona College Internship Program (PCIP)

Fall 2022 Update

The PCIP application for Fall 2022 is NOW CLOSED. No late applications will be accepted.

Note: The student employment policy from Spring 2022 will continue for Fall 2022, where a student may participate in a stipend-based program (i.e. PCIP) OR participate in student jobs on campus (i.e. teaching assistants).


The Career Development Office offers two distinguished internship programs with the Pomona College Internship Program (PCIP) -- PCIP Semester and PCIP Summer Experience. Both programs aid students in the process of exploring & determining a career path, gaining a rich understanding of a particular field and/or organization, building & growing their professional networks, and enhancing the understanding of how their liberal arts education will be applied in a professional work environment.

PCIP Semester

Occurs every Fall &  Spring and provides students with a generous stipend to pursue part-time, unpaid experiential learning opportunities with employers in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. (Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, both remote and in-person internships will be considered for PCIP funding.) Students are able to secure their own opportunity or apply through Handshake to "PCIP-eligible" listings.

PCIP Summer

Occurs during the summer and provides students with a stipend to help alleviate some of the costs of pursuing a summer internship in the US or internationally. There are two separate application processes for International & Domestic funding, and the application process includes a budget proposal, resume, cover letter, short essay responses, references, and a panel interview with a committee of faculty and staff.
