Career Ready Internships

Heidelberg is one of 33 colleges and universities in the Midwest that received a Career Ready Internship Grant from the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corp. The grant provides $261,000 over a three-year period to provide paid internships for those with financial need.

This grant allowed Heidelberg to double the number of for-credit, paid internships completed by students and double the number of majors regularly participating in Heidelberg’s internship program. The grant “levels the playing field” because funds will pay for internships for students who, for financial reasons, may not have been able to complete an unpaid internship.

Writing Center

The Writing Center is not a place for bad writers; it is a place where all students can come to improve their writing by working with your peers. Peer Writing Assistants can help you at any stage of your paper. Are you having trouble defining your topic? Are you unsure how to expand what you’ve already got? Do you need to research and you’re not quite sure where to start? Or, are you ready to polish and create a hand-in?

Peer writing assistants can help you pinpoint persistent problems and work them out of your writing. They’ll help you untangle the mysteries of the writing process, and make the experience more beneficial and satisfying. Working together, you’ll hone your writing skills and increase your self-confidence as a student writer. What writing assistants won’t do is dig out the red pen and proof-read your paper for you. They'll help you learn the skills to confidently approach your own editing. Our tutoring is designed to help students become independent writers.
