Alternative Post-Grad Opportunities

Professional development is never a one-size-fits-all. Post-graduate domestic and international gap year opportunities allow SHU students to advance their knowledge of community needs and global/intercultural fluency while fostering civic engagement and establishing a professional network of like-minded individuals dedicated to social impact. Several service programs offer incentives, including but not limited to, health coverage, stipends for living/travel expenses, education awards, federal loan support, and a vast professional network to help launch your career. Whether you are seeking alternative employment, service, fellowships, teaching or research opportunities after graduation, this is your place to explore.

Take the path less traveled and lead a life of impact.
