Students held signature internships during J-Term

 During Hollins’ January Short Term, the career section of the umbrella representing the Alumnae Engagement Initiative is paramount. That’s when students are working in the signature internships for which they applied during fall semester. In many cases, alumnae make these internships possible, and often alumnae or parents provide housing. Thanks to generous donors, students engaging in signature internships receive a $300 stipend.

If you’d like to support Hollins’ mission of creating top-level internship experiences for our students, here’s how:

  • Connect a student to an internship.
  • Host a student intern during January Short Term.
  • Mentor a student interested in your profession.

Contact the Career Center at or (540) 362-6364 if you can help. Learn more about the Alumnae Engagement Initiative here.
