For the fourth consecutive year, a cohort of highly motivated Marist students remained on campus over the summer to participate in the Marie and Rupert Tarver Summer Internship program, which enables undergraduates to work on a community improvement project in collaboration with a local non-profit organization.

The Tarver Summer Internship Program honors the exceptional accomplishments of Mrs. Marie Tarver, a greatly respected community leader, and her husband, the late Mr. Rupert Tarver, a renowned civil rights pioneer in the Hudson River Valley. The program supports summer undergraduate internships through the CCEL. Participants receive a substantial stipend, tuition credits, and on-campus housing for the duration of the program. As an integral component of the program, interns affiliate with an approved nonprofit organization in the Hudson River Valley and complete agreed-upon goals and objectives during the summer term. Tarver Interns work with faculty and their nonprofit partner to design their internship project and identify the key issues that their work will address.

Applications for the 2018 program are now available and are due by 5 pm on Friday, February 9, 2018.
