Magellan Franklin Internship Award

What is a Magellan Franklin?

W&J’s Magellan Franklin Internship Award is a unique Magellan experience that financially enables students to take advantage of meaningful summer internship opportunities.

Why is a Magellan Franklin necessary?

We understand that the experience gained from an internship can be more valuable than the compensation. This is where the financial aid provided by a Magellan Franklin can be beneficial.

How can a Magellan Franklin be helpful?

Internships provide students with valuable opportunities to acquire skills outside the classroom and gain practical experience in their chosen profession. It also allows students to discern whether or not they are on the path to the right career.
