Thanks to the generous support of external donors, Elms College established the Keating-Schneider Experiential Learning Fund (KSF) and the Elms Advantage Internship Experience Fund (EAI) to provide financial support for students pursuing unpaid internship, research, study abroad, and mission trip experiences.

Under normal circumstances, students participating in one of these opportunities attend a showcase event in the spring, where they present their reflections on their extracurriculars and connect with donors, faculty, staff, and fellow students.

This year, the annual student showcase was moved online due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Below, you can view a recording of the experiential learning Zoom session, along with a handful of reflections from students who completed internships and research experiences in 2019-2020.
