Partner Organization Requirements
- Organizations will conduct interviews and select students
CSB strongly believes that students should not perform uncompensated work. We also recognize that many organizations do not have the budget to fund internships. Our internship program requires that organizations contribute modest matching funds to support students, with Stern providing the bulk of the support. Required funding levels are outlined below.
I work for an organization and am interested in posting a position through your program. How do I do this?
- Academic Year Funding (UNDERGRADAUTE): CSB to provide $1,000/per student as a stipend for 10 hours/week for the semester; Organization to provide minimum additional $500 in funding per student
- Summer Funding (UNDERGRADUATE): CSB to provide $4,000/per student; Organization to provide minimum additional $1,000 in funding per student
- Academic Year Funding (MBA): CSB to provide $1,800/per student as a stipend for the semester; Organization to provide minimum additional $700 in student funding
- Summer Funding (MBA): Summer MBA positions may be funded through an existing MBA internship support program entitled SIIF. As part of that program, partner organizations are required to commit a minimum of $3,000 towards the student. Students will apply for this funding. For more information on that process and requirements, please email Kate Scarbrough (email@example.com) and Lynn O'Connell (firstname.lastname@example.org). If a student does not receive funding through SIIF, CSB will work out funding details with the organization and qualified students on a case by case basis.
Great! Please email email@example.com
so that we can discuss further.
What are the responsibilities to Stern as part of participation in this program?
We will require the students to blog about their internship experience, and would welcome quotes and access to the organization to approve these blogs and to share your experiences with the program.
I am a for-profit, social venture organization and I’m interested in hiring Stern students? Can I qualify for funding as part of your program?
The NYU Stern CSB Internship program provides funding to students working with non-profit organizations only. There are other internship support programs for undergraduates and MBAs that could support organizations like yours. For more information on the process and requirements for MBA students, please email Kate Scarbrough (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and Lynn O'Connell (email@example.com
How do I pay the student?
Organizations can either submit a donation to NYU Stern CSB which will in turn be used to fund the position. Or, organizations can hire the students directly and pay them through their normal payroll channels.
My organization compensates students for summer positions at a rate higher than the minimum $3,000 required by SIIF? Do I have to pay them more?
If an organization routinely hires MBA students and payment is above $3,000, we require the employer to compensate the Stern MBA according to that rate. We have found this is important to ensure that the student is incorporated into the organization's 'traditional' summer internship program and all the benefits that come with it. If the organizations pays more than the minimum $3,000, then Stern will still contribute the difference, bringing the student to $13,000.
When do we need to submit internship postings?
Fall Internships: submit by mid-August
Spring Internships: submit by mid-November
Summer Internships: submit in February
Note: there is flexibility with these deadlines.
