PLEASE NOTE: Funded internships are considered college-sponsored programs and, as such, are subject to all college policies regarding international and domestic travel, including travel restrictions. These policies may change with little warning in response to global events.

The Wagner Professional Development Program was created to help currently enrolled students defray the costs associated with off-campus career-related activities including travel costs associated with term-time internships, year-round professional conference attendance and summer national fellowships.

Conference stipends may be used to cover expenses associated with travel to and from the event, conference fees, lodging, food and non-alcoholic beverages. Stipends cannot be used to pay for non-conference related expenses. Stipend amounts will differ depending upon a student’s expected expenses and may not cover all of the expenses incurred by a student.

All stipends will be paid at the conclusion of the internship or conference.  Students will be expected to submit receipts and account for mileage.  Funds are limited and distributed at the discretion of the Career Services Office.

Students cannot apply for funding to travel in countries that are on the U.S. State Department Warning List or U.S. Centers for Disease Control Travel Warning List without an approved petition. Students seeking an exception to this policy must submit a Travel Warning Petition to the Office of Career Services.  Petitions are reviewed and considered by the College’s Safety Policy Committee and decisions made by the committee are final.
