The EAGLE (Explore-Assess-Grow-Learn-Experience) Intern Fellowship Program is a selective opportunity that provides financial support to Boston College undergraduates who obtain internships with organizations that are not able to provide a salary. By eliminating financial barriers, this program allows students to explore their career interests, gain new skills and experience the world of work.
