Engage Dallas Paid Internship Experience
Engage Dallas is a place-based community engagement initiative via SMU’s Residential Commons to address community needs focusing on South and West Dallas. The initiative is a long-term, University-wide commitment led by students to partner with local residents, organizations and other leaders to positively impact the community. There is equal emphasis on campus and community impact stemming from the initiative.
We are excited to announce the continuation of the Engage Dallas Summer Internship Program for the second year. Supporting this project allows donors to contribute to meaningful career exploration opportunities for Mustangs while investing into our South and West Dallas community organizations. This program provides the opportunity for our community partners to apply to host an internship experience and be matched with a qualified SMU student. Engage Dallas provides 100% of the funding for the selected students to ensure they are compensated for their work while placing financial burden on the community partner is avoided. Your contribution would directly benefit an SMU student pursuing an impactful learning experience this summer.
