Benefits of NUFP

  • Mentorship on Campus
    Fellows and their Mentors participate in an ongoing exchange designed to provide the Fellow with a chance to develop a sense of what a career in student affairs or higher education might be like.
  • Summer Internships
    The NUFP Summer Internship Program gives fellows an opportunity to gain insight into the fields of higher education and student affairs through a campus-based experience at a campus other than their own. Internships can last anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks, and it is required that host institutions offer a $1,500 minimum stipend, as well as help coordinate the intern's room and board.
  • Alessandra's Internship Experience
    "What I enjoyed most about my internship at Cal was the willingness of the staff to help us with our projects and their openness about their life experiences and how they got to higher education and student affairs. It was obvious that the Cal staff had a desire for us to learn and they made it their mission to make sure we got the most out of our internship experience."

  • Susan's Internship Experience
    "The NUFP Summer Internship Program is unquestionably one of the highlights of my time as a NUFP fellow. During my time in this program, I worked in the Center for Student Conduct at UC Berkeley and the Dean of Students office. From learning about the structure of the university to meeting inspirational individuals on this campus, this experience encompasses many learning opportunities that have helped shape me as an individual and a future Student Affairs professional. If given the chance, I highly encourage any interested students to take advantage of this opportunity to not only learn more about why others have chosen this field, but also learn more about what drives your passion as a future Student Affairs professional."
  • Nicole's Internship Experience
    "I am so glad I decided to apply to the amazing internships that the NUFP database has to offer. My time as an intern at UC Berkeley’s LEAD Center has been invaluable. I was surprised how hands on, fun, and educational my experiences have been and I have even been able to meet and collaborate with many of the incredible Student Affairs professionals on campus. When I complete my internship, I will be able to take away some of the work I have done to show graduate schools and future employers. Through my time as an intern, I have developed as a person, student, and future professional. I would definitely encourage anyone considering it!"
  • Conferences
    NUFP Fellows are provided specific programming at NASPA's annual conference, as well as many regional conferences. Conferences include informational sessions on a wide variety of relevant Student Affairs issues presented by professionals throughout the field and opportunities to connect with individuals from specific regions or universities.
