The Alvarez Summer Internship Grant program is designed to hone language skills and deepen cultural understanding while providing a wealth of real world experiences that advance postgraduate opportunities. The program includes a $4000 grant, on-campus housing and a 1-credit annotation on student's transcript.
The Alvarez Summer Internship Grant program engages Trinity students in matters and activities falling under the MAS mission and promote Trinity University's relations with non-profit organizations whose activities are related to the mission. These internships also support the development of a greater appreciation and understanding of the cultural expression, historical experience, societal practices, institutional life, and the physical environment of the people that inhabit the multiple spaces included in the MAS program.
"I started my internship a week ago at Canal Alliance, a nonprofit organization that caters to the Spanish speaking Latino community in San Rafael, CA.. I am working with their immigration department and have already had the opportunity to work with clients…. My Spanish language skills are definitely coming in handy. I am very grateful for this opportunity…."
