The Tarver Summer Internship Program was established to honor the exceptional accomplishments of Marie Tarver, a long time respected community leader, and her husband, the late Rupert Tarver, a renowned civil rights pioneer in the Hudson River Valley. The program supports summer undergraduate internships through the CCEL. Tarver interns work under the guidance and direction of a Marist faculty member for a summer-long, 3-credit independent study arrangement. Participants receive a substantial stipend, 3 free tuition credits, and free on-campus housing for the duration of the program.
As an integral component of the program, interns affiliate with an approved nonprofit organization in the Hudson River Valley and complete agreed-upon goals and objectives during the summer term. Students work with the faculty sponsor and nonprofit site supervisor to design the internship project and identify the key issues that the intern’s work will address.
