D'Aniello Internships

The D'Aniello Entrepreneurial Internship Program is an internationally recognized initiative which provides unique entrepreneurial opportunities for 20 highly qualified Whitman undergraduate and graduate students.  As a D’Aniello intern, you’ll work directly with an entrepreneur, president, or senior executive in a high-growth, innovative company located in the greater-Syracuse metropolitan area.

Being selected as a D'Aniello intern is both an honor and a challenge as interns participate in exciting, hands-on, experience-based learning opportunities in entrepreneurial work environments.

D'Aniello intern candidates are required to enroll for independent study/experiential learning credit and to work between 15 and 20 hours per week for at least 13 weeks with their host company. Limited to US citizens and students with authorization to work in the USA.
