Signature Internships, from the Beltway to San Francisco, provide exclusive opportunities for St. Mary’s College students. For students wanting to participate in unpaid summer internships, an award in the range of $2,000 – $5,000 can be the deciding factor.
John Bell ’95 created an internship scholarship that provides funds for students to intern with the GLBT Historical Society Archives and Museum in San Francisco, California.
Jenna Gregory ’19 (art history) was the fifth St. Mary’s College recipient. Elisabeth Cornu, museum adviser for GLBHTS, remarked that “Jenna has been wonderful, not only in helping us catalog a number of important items at the archives and helping with shelving work but also in assisting with exhibit preparation and doing desk duty at the museum. [She] has done all of her duties with characteristic enthusiasm and cheerfulness.” A resident of Baltimore, Maryland, Jenna Gregory is pursuing minors in both religious studies and women, gender, and sexuality studies.
