Alumnae Association Internship Fund

A newly established initiative of the Alumnae Leadership Council to enrich student opportunities for career exploration.

In spring 2015, over $500,000 in internship funding requests was received by current students. However, the College only had resources to fund about $200,000. This critical unmet need led to the Alumnae Leadership Council establishing the Alumnae Association Internship Fund to complement existing sources of internship funding. Please join other alumnae in supporting this incredibly important initiative that will provide students with invaluable work experience and industry knowledge that employers are now demanding.

When giving online, please be sure to type in Alumnae Internship Fund on the giving form.

Your Personal Gateway to Scripps

2014 Reunion WeekendIntroduced February 2013, the reorganized operations of alumnae relations, parent outreach, and fundraising are now found in the Office of Alumnae & Parent Engagement and The Scripps Fund (APESF). This highly energetic group of Scripps advocates spends their days (and nights) working on ways to engage you with Scripps experiences. With a goal of 100 percent alumnae and parent engagement, they are introducing new ways to connect alumnae and parents’ time, talent, and treasure to the life of Scripps College.

“We want to convey how much it means to have our parents and alumnae share their precious time with us in this busy world,” says Nikki Khurana, assistant vice president, APESF. “Whether an alumna is volunteering to help organize a gathering in a city far from campus or a parent provides a Scripps internship at his or her company, we appreciate their involvement with the College.”

You can find them on the Scripps College Alumnae Association or Scripps Association of Families Facebook pages, by email, or by phone at (909) 607-1542.

“Nikki has embraced Scripps with her heart and has added fresh thinking about how to make this office an easily-accessible gateway for our key constituents,” says Michael Archibald, vice president for institutional advancement. “When she walks into my office, I see her mind at work, as she and her team create new opportunities for Scripps alumnae and parents to enjoy and benefit from their interaction with the College.”
