ECU undergrads take advantage of SECU PFI summer internship opportunities

East Carolina University students set out for rewarding and impactful internships across eastern North Carolina this summer as part of the State Employees’ Credit Union Public Fellows Internship program. The program places undergraduate students throughout the region for internship projects that address community-identified priorities.

The program provides opportunities for students to develop leadership, analytical, problem solving, communication and project management skills, while allowing them to network in professional settings.

Over the past eight years at ECU, the program has provided more than 100 internships to 70 eastern North Carolina organizations. This year, 18 ECU undergraduates were selected to the program for 18 sites across 11 counties. Students completed 330 internship hours as part of the program and received a $4,645 stipend.

Internship locations included positions at A Time for Science in Grifton, The Blind Center in Washington, and Weldon in Action in Halifax County.
