Each Summer, the McKenna Center for Human Development and Global Business selects a group of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students to serve as McKenna Center Interns.  These are students that have distinguished themselves in their academic performance, extracurricular activities, and engagement with life experiences. They are young men and women committed to excellence who want to make their worlds a better place. McKenna Interns work twenty or more hours per week on projects related to business, entrepreneurship, and development, with a primary focus on poverty alleviation.

The theme of the internships is experiential learning, or learning and making a difference through doing. During the internship, students conduct research, work on consulting projects, assist with program development, and otherwise get involved with the portfolio of poverty-related initiatives of the McKenna Center. For information on how to apply to be a McKenna Intern, contact Susan McDonald in the McKenna Center (3170 Jenkins-Nanovic Halls) or Dr. Michael Morris at
