Summer Internships & Capstone Fellowships

The RPCS Summer Internship Program empowers our students to pose questions about the world, embrace new challenges and search for their purpose as they step into real-world professions.

The program connects rising seniors with professional internship experiences in a wide range of career fields. The introduction of the RPCS Summer Internship Program is the first step in the articulation of future opportunities in leadership, design, innovation, and entrepreneurship for all our students. Over the past four summers, this program has placed a total of 130 student interns in in fields including medicine, law, computer science, social work, finance—and many more interesting and enlightening areas for real world learning.
This program supports our vision for an RPCS education that connects classrooms to communities and equips our students with the future-directed skills that enable their success here at RPCS—and beyond into their professional journeys.
