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.
Jamie Krantz ’17 (philosophy) was
the fourth St. Mary’s College recipient. “The work I did with the GLBT Historical Society was often event-centered but all of it provided me with great experience working with people and promoting and preserving queer history and art.”
For Elena Gross ’12 (art/art history), the internship was a springboard to a master’s degree at California College of the Arts, which led to her current job as gallery associate at San Francisco’s Fraenkel Gallery.
Jack Saum ’89 is president and CEO of Beltway Companies, with 10 locations across Md. With his wife Jeanne Brady Saum ’88, they established a scholarship and internship experience for St. Mary’s College students from Baltimore. Two former interns, Dante Chestnut ’13 (economics) and Tygee Shakir ’15 (political science), are now full-time employees.
