ARCS Internship IG Takeover

ARCS is committed to advocating for paid internships in an industry that remains inaccessible to many. For that reason, in fall 2021, we awarded two stipends of $1,000 to students pursuing internships in registration and collections management. We are excited to share with you, through an Instagram takeover, what the awardees did during their internships. Make sure to tune in to the @ARCS4all account to follow along with Priscilla Foreman and Jewel Trail this week!

Keep an eye out for a call for applications for the summer 2022 internship stipend program in our March 8th ARCS update!
