Internships

Through Aurora University's partnership with the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA), AU Leadership Studies majors have access to a number of career and internship resources.  The AU-NLA partnership provides students with access to a national network of nonprofit workplace partners.  Eligible Leadership Studies majors can apply for an NLA Career Development Award (Scholarship) to defer the costs of nonprofit internships (go here to learn more about this scholarship opportunity).

In addition to the resources available through the AU-NLA partnership, students majoring in Leadership Studies can participate in a wide range of internship experiences not only in the western suburbs and the Chicagoland area but across the country.  Examples of recent AU internship sites that Leadership Studies majors might consider include:
