Summer Internships

As a Furman Psychology major, many summer internship opportunities are available to you. You could choose an internship in the Greenville area or you could find yourself focusing on neuropsychological patients at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. or researching chimpanzees at Yerkes Primate Center in Atlanta.

We encourage interested students to apply for a Summer Research & Internships Fellowship to support your experience. We offer one of the few programs in the United States that directly funds student research and internships each summer, providing competitive fellowships for students who would otherwise receive little or no payment. Applications are typically due at the end of February. Visit the Internship Office to start the process of setting up a summer internship​.
