Jaggar Community Fellows Program
Celebrating 10 years of giving students life-changing, paid summer internships at nonprofits.
The Center for Career and Professional Development joined forces with the Innovation Center to help shift the Jaggar Community Fellows Program to a virtual format. As a result, 44 students were placed in 11 nonprofits for 10 week project team virtual internships during the summer of 2020.
