Get Involved to Support Current Students

Here’s a chance to hear from Ariel, who had the opportunity to intern at the Laura Baker Services Association thanks to the MCAN Fellows Program.

Our current efforts are centered around connecting New Alumni to the existing Multicultural Alumni Network community. The resources, mentorship, networking, and engagement opportunities this affinity group provides are extraordinarily rewarding. The MCAN program that we want to highlight and continue to build support for is the MCAN Fellows Program.

This is a program that supports experiential learning by providing financial support for students undertaking internships, research experiences, or other field-based opportunities in fields that offer no compensation — or lower compensation than the pro-rated equivalent of entry-level salary. Awarding supplemental grants sufficient to cover expenses and, to the extent possible, lost earnings necessary for any required portion of tuition and other costs needed to attend Carleton the coming academic year.
