Fellowships, Externships, Internships & Volunteering
The Reed College Fellowships & Awards Committe oversees a number of programs that provide the funding for you to pursue the summer or post-graudate project of your dreams.
Reed Winter Externships take place in January of every year and offer you the opportunity to get an in-depth look at a specific career during the break between semesters. Applications are due during the fall semester.
Internship Advantage opportunities are 8- and 10-week paid summer experiences that are offered in partnership with the Center for Life Beyond Reed.
We capture a variety of internships in our systems, including the Nationwide Internships Consortium, a database shared by Reed and many other nationally-ranked liberal arts colleges.
Volunteer experience is a rewarding way to gain work experience while giving back to your community. SEEDS seeks to connect you to the greater community in an effort to complement the academic program, inform your personal and career development, and create and sustain a positive impact within the communities served.
