Samaritan Internship Scholarship


The purpose of the Samaritan Intern Scholarship is to provide an annual stipend to one summer intern applicant who has demonstrated interest in learning more about, working in, and possibly a career in, non-profit organizations. The stipend will be paid directly to the selected intern on a twice-monthly basis. The term of the internship is 9 weeks, approximately 30 hours per week, beginning in June annually, with the start date dependent upon the intern’s college schedule. The selected applicant will work for approximately 4 weeks at the Suffolk Foundation with the remaining 5 weeks divided between two additional non-profit agencies (selected by the Suffolk Foundation) located in Suffolk, VA. The current rate of the stipend is $10.50 per hour worked.
