Citadel Alumni Supporting Internships
The Citadel network is one of the strongest in the country, and Citadel Alumni continuously support the ongoing professional development of current Citadel students. One ongoing way to contribute to this effort is through the The Career Center Fund with The Citadel Foundation , choose “View All Giving Opportunities” and then search “Career Center.” This fund supports the Citadel Career Center Internship Scholarship Fund.
