Whitehead Interns at Work in the Business World
For over two decades, the John C. Whitehead '43 Fund in Entrepreneurial Studies has helped Haverford students pursue summer internships with small businesses, venture capital firms and investment companies. This year, the fund is supporting 28 students working in the business world—the largest group in the program’s history. The Whitehead interns, who may opt to secure their own internships or be placed with the firms of alumni sponsors, are working for a wide range of companies this summer, including a major advertising agency, an economic consulting firm, a tech company specializing in system migrations, a small business development organization, and the group that runs the TED Conferences.
