Pomona College Internship Program (PCIP)

Spring 2021 Update

Pomona College students who are enrolled full-time for Spring 2021 may apply for PCIP. Incoming transfer students are eligible after completing one semester. Please know that the student employment policy from fall 2020 will continue for spring 2021, where a student may participate in a stipend-based program (i.e. PCIP) or work up to 12 hours per week in multiple jobs.

In light of the ongoing pandemic, the CDO will continue to *only* accept REMOTE opportunities that are SECURED at the time you apply for PCIP. 

The PCIP application for Spring 2021 is now closed. 

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. 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.
