"Working as the annual giving intern for the UC Foundation has given me the opportunity to learn what it takes to be a successful fundraiser. I am grateful for the experiences that I have been afforded as a result of this internship and the projects that I was privileged to work on. Throughout my time at the foundation I have become more knowledgeable about the needs of the University and have been privileged to meet many influential contributors to the greatness of our University."
--Patrice Barnes, Annual Giving Intern
Working for the Foundation was a very unique experience that gave me skills I can use throughout my entire career. I was able to develop myself professionally, and now I feel more confident when I am in a business setting. I enjoyed working on different projects, and I really liked the fact that every day at work is different. My co-workers were always there to help me, no matter how many questions I had, and I felt that I could go to them for anything. I would definitely recommend applying for an internship at the UC Foundation. It was an experience that I will never forget!
--Brittany Collins, Human Resources Intern
What I have enjoyed most about working for UCF is being able to see first-hand the effects giving back has on colleges and programs across campus. As an intern in the executive office, I have gained invaluable practice in professional writing, business relations, and administrative support. The best experiences at a university are those in which strengthen your pride and respect for your alma mater. To be given the opportunity to see how the different offices at UCF work in unison for the common goal of bettering the university has succeeded in not only maximizing my professional abilities, but also highlighting for me the incredible accomplishments of our staff.
--Megan Kendall, UCF President’s Office Intern
The opportunity to work as an intern in the UC Foundation is one of the greatest ways to serve your University. You will witness and experience first- hand the power of private support and how much it truly means to all UC students. Taking advantage of this internship will not only expose you to the passion others have for UC but also help you grow your own.
