Wheaton now guarantees every student an opportunity to participate in an internship, research or other experiential learning project. This is part of our promise called the Wheaton Edge—another way we position our students for success.

The Wheaton Fund helps secure this commitment.

Your support connects students to local and global internships. This could mean internships in Boston or Providence, or more local opportunities in Norton and surrounding communities. Some internships span the academic year, while others are short bursts, such a “winternships” during winter break, which expose students to an array of careers and networking opportunities.

Also, the fund helps students put their talents to use abroad. Students have traversed the globe to participate in meaningful internships—including medical clinics in Ghana, cancer research laboratories in China, nature reserves in Belize, and classrooms in France.
