Hit the Road to Find Out if Community Development is for You!

Posted: September 8, 2016

The Scholarship, Sustainability and Civic Engagement Program (SSCEP) combines courses with communities, giving you the chance to learn in the classroom and in local settings where you help effect change for citizens across Pennsylvania.

SSCEP is a 7-credit, three-semester (Spring, Summer, Fall) internship program that combines hands-on coursework and a summer internship in a Pennsylvania community. A new initiative through the Community, Environment, and Development (CED) major, this is a very unique way to learn about local change and community development while actually implementing new programs and projects in partnering areas. The SSCEP program helps students apply what they are learning in classes, complete a rigorous internship experience, stand out with employers AND help support a local community. Applications for the 2017 program are due Friday, September 16 by 5 pm. To learn more and apply check out the SSCEP website http://aese.psu.edu/students/sscep
