Internships for Student Veterans

A relationship that benefits employers and students

Student veterans know what they have accomplished in service to their country. Now, they need a foot in the door to prove they can do a civilian job.

Giving a student veteran an internship is a win-win proposition.

CU Denver Boots to Suits, along with the CU Denver Office of Experiential Learning, matches talented veteran students with businesses, government agencies and non-profits in need of extra support. Interns usually work up to 20 hours per week for a 16-week period during the fall and spring semesters.

With their real-world experiences, veterans bring unique skills and perspective to the table—including proven leadership under pressure, a strong sense of teamwork and an unparalleled work ethic.

Go ahead, give a vet a chance at success

Supporters Say​

"An internship is an opportunity for the tire to meet the road. In college, you study what to do in your given career field. But you can't learn everything from a book. Until you get a chance to actually do it, you haven't really learned it."
