Springer Center for Internships

Bradley's Centralized Cooperative Education and Internship Program

With the establishment of the Springer Center for Internships in 2008, Bradley University and the Smith Career Center rededicated the commitment to providing students with opportunities for career-related work experience. The Center provides resources to help students secure meaningful internships, co-ops, and part-time jobs. A centralized Cooperative Education and Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to register their internship for official transcript notation and possible credit.

Bradley students actively pursue opportunities for experiential learning. In the recent First Destination Study Report, 98% of the Bradley graduates participated in experiential learning and 85% had a reported internship or practicum. Bradley graduates reported internships in 24 different states and 11 countries. .

Outstanding Co-op/Intern of the Year Award

Each year, the Springer Center selects up to five students to receive the Outstanding Co-op/Intern of the Year Award.

Internship Fund Award (IFA)

The purpose of the IFA is to reduce financial barriers which prevent some students from pursuing experience in their career field of interest. The program assists with expenses incurred while conducting a summer internship that is either unpaid or paid or provides only a stipend. The number and amount of awards vary each year. Opportunities to apply are announced each spring semester.
