Internships & Grants

Internships and applied learning help you build skills that bridge the gap between college and the workforce. These experiences can provide relevant training and allow you to develop the skills that will set you apart as you look to build your career.

The Career Development Center’s applied learning specialist is available to help you explore various opportunities and will work with you to develop a strategy for securing applied learning opportunities that are relevant to your intended career path. 


In a recent study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 74 percent of employers shared that they preferred to hire students with relevant work experience.

Applied Learning Grants

The SUNY Plattsburgh Applied Learning Grants are made available through the support of the SUNY Plattsburgh College Foundation and administered by the Career Development Center (CDC). Applied Learning Grants are available to students to provide financial support related to under or unpaid applied learning experiences and/or to offset direct expenses. Preference is given to undergraduate applicants; however, graduate students are welcome to apply.

Applications are accepted each year for fall (September), winter (November), spring (February) and summer (April). Be sure to check the application for specific due dates.
