The NEIU Alumni Association is proud to introduce a new initiative to help alumni across generations build authentic relationships. 

Through the use of short-term projects, or what we like to call "Micro-Internships," experienced alumni can provide opportunities for NEIU students and recent alumni to work on real professional assignments. In order to drive this initiative, NEIU has partnered with Parker Dewey, a mission-oriented, local organization aiming to improve the college-to-career transition for all stakeholders.

Get ready to post, get ready to apply! Parker Dewey is your one stop shop for opportunities to bolster your resume, explore various career paths, and make some extra money.

What can your ENHANCED membership DO for students?

Help the NEIU Alumni Association grow its Internship Scholarship for current students. A portion of your donation provides financial support for internship opportunities to students and engagement of students in the NEIU Alumni Association.  

Students who benefit from Internship Scholarships

For Ridge, the NEIUAA Internship Scholarship is one step closer to achieving her dream as a future educator.

When I went back to school at the age of 25 I was determined to achieve the impossible; I would not be held back. What I have experienced at NEIU has been more of a blessing than I can begin to explain. Being a full-time student and working isn’t easy at all and requires that constant ‘go-go-go!’ That being said, from the moment I began receiving financial support from NEIU I was at a loss for words and I still am.

For Hall, the NEIUAA Internship Scholarship is one of four scholarships she’s earned at the University in the past year.

We need to empower African-American youths to do everything,” she said. “You can become a teacher, you can do robotics. If children are empowered and educated, they can do anything. I hope my story will encourage othersIf I can’t be anything else, let me be an example that you can do this.
