Colleges & Universities
We are blessed to partner with the following colleges and universities who have either hosted SSI or participated in our Summer Internship Opportunity!
Great Lakes Christian College has hosted the summer program (LEAD) every year but one since our first week in 1995. Because GLCC was so impressed with the quality of students coming to their campus for LEAD every summer, in 2012 they began offering a full-tuition scholarship to one SSI alum each school year. To quote GLCC, “Having a $50K+ scholarship offered to one of your students every year says a lot about your program!”
Professor Garry Britten, Assistant Professor of Business in the Gainey School of Business has been running LEAD’s Business Track since its inception in 2005. Then in 2014, Spring Arbor University began sending student representatives every summer to serve as interns during LEAD. The success of these relationships along with a generous SAU alumn led to the establishment of two $20,000 scholarships ($5,000/year) for SSI alumni beginning with the 2016-2017 school year.
Many SSI alum have made Hillsdale home for their college years. In 2015, Hillsdale began sending student representatives to serve as interns during LEAD each summer.
Cornerstone University’s campus has hosted multiple Onsite programs for SSI going back to one of our earliest ones in Grand Rapids in 2006. In 2016, Cornerstone sent a student representative to serve as an intern during LEAD.
