This internship is an opportunity for a student to get hands-on experience with community and individual relationship building as well as a chance to be a part of a special events team for a National Cancer Institute designated cancer center and distinguished university hospital. The intern will be given real responsibilities and projects to take on as their own; accountability is essential for this internship. There will be contact with our key community partners, board members, donors, and volunteers for the intern to develop their network of connections.

The largest event is the Hollings Cancer Center 18th Annual Golf Tournament which is held on Kiawah Islands prestigious Turtle Point- Monday September 15, 2014. Attendance to this and other special events throughout the fall is requested.



This is an UNPAID internship. Hollings Cancer Center will provide reimbursement for any mileage or expenses incurred for events during the internship.



This internship will be for the Fall 2014 semester. We would prefer a consistent schedule throughout the week: however, we are flexible and understanding of a student’s class schedule. We are looking for about 8-15 hours per week. To realize the full potential of the management and supervisory roles of the internship, we request that the intern be present at the above mentioned events. For the right candidate, opportunity for student to intern the entire academic year.
