At Mason, we are proud to be home to over 37,000 students from all socioeconomic backgrounds, many of whom face overwhelming financial obstacles while in school.  And when our students are in need, Mason Nation answers the call.

That’s why University Life, College of Health and Human Services, the Schar School of Policy and Government, the Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution and the Honors College are working together on Giving Day to raise money for career readiness – to eliminate barriers to economic and social mobility by making it possible for all Mason students to have the career-building experiences they need for postgraduate success.

Join us on Giving Day, April 8, and make a gift to our Career Readiness Fund which supports the Unpaid Internship Scholarship program. To date, University Life has distributed over $140,000 in scholarships so students did not have to choose between taking a paying job not necessarily related to their career goals, or a resume-building internship opportunity that is unpaid.

Together, let’s ensure that every student with the ability to succeed at Mason has the opportunity to do so.
