Summer Service Scholars (SSS) is an academic internship program in New York’s State Capital through the Siena College Center for Academic Community Engagement. Accepted Summer Service Scholars spend 9 weeks with a nonprofit community partner in the Capital Region, working on projects that build capacity within the organization. SSS provides participants with engaging and valuable experience working with nonprofits, and an opportunity to engage in conversations about social justice with a cohort of other students interested in making a difference in the community.
In conjunction with their full-time service, participants enroll in a Siena College course, Internships in Community Development, for 0-6 credits, meeting once a week on Siena’s campus for seminars that focus on professional and community development. Scholars have the opportunity to utilize on-campus housing at Siena, and can apply to a competitive stipend pool once accepted to the program.
