To help make the playing field for hopeful interns more equitable, Berg helped to establish the John C. Berg Scholarship Fund, an endowed fund to support Suffolk students that demonstrate financial need who are attending one of the internship programs at The Washington Center, Educational Programmes Abroad (EPA), International Partnership for Service Learning (IPSL), or other Suffolk approved and accredited programs.

Help Support Internships

Internships benefit Suffolk students in many ways, yet the cost of unpaid or low-paid internships can prohibit students to access these opportunities. The Center for Career Equity, Development and Success is grateful to the donors who have made these funds possible.

If you are interested in helping enable our students to pursue internships, please consider donating to our Ram Internship Fund. We welcome contributions from alumni, parents, our employer partners, students, and friends. Your generous contribution will allow students to pursue meaningful and interesting opportunities that might not otherwise be possible for them!
