Services for Students with Disabilities

The new Emerging Leaders Internship Program for College and Graduate Students with Disabilities is underway and applications are now being accepted!

A program of the National Business & Disability Council (NBDC) at The Viscardi Center, we are pleased to announce that our Emerging Leaders program offers year-round internships at many leading employers. These employers are proactive in recruiting qualified students with disabilities. This important change provides students a broader range of opportunities for getting their foot in the door at Fortune 1000 companies looking to fill internships with qualified students with disabilities!

In addition, we have streamlined the application process by providing a new easier to use electronic application on our website. To be considered for an internship, a student must be an enrolled undergraduate or graduate student with a disability, who has completed at least 60 credits, and is maintaining at least a 2.8 GPA.
