How Can I Afford to Do This?

We anticipate that all costs associated with the internship will be paid via:

  1. Shepherd Alliance Scholarship
  2. Sponsorship by Community Missions and Niagara Falls Housing Authority

There may be some incidental costs (e.g. personal items) and students should expect to spend their own monies for activities that are not part of the internship (e.g. movies and other personal entertainment).

Shepherd Summer Interns are required to provide a minimum of 120 hours of service to their sponsoring agency during the academic year following their summer internship. Details of the service will be worked out individually. Students may utilize the service requirement to create an independent study course for credit or to otherwise build the service hours into existing course requirements if possible.
