The James B. Tafel Summer Internship Scholarship Program
The Purpose of the Fund
The James B. Tafel Endowed Internship Fund was established in 2001 to enable Pitt Business students to accept challenging business internships that prepare them as outstanding business leaders in the global business environment. Tafel Fellowships are awarded for internships at a variety of organizations, including large, well-established companies, small and medium-sized businesses, startups and young companies, and nonprofits.
Pitt Business Tafel Fellows will complete a 10-week internship over the summer that range from 10-20 hours/week. Participating students will receive a stipend of $2,250.
There are two ways for students to engage with the Tafel Scholarship.
- Students who have already secured an unpaid business internship for summer 2022 can apply for the scholarship to receive funding for their internship. Apply here!
