Smullin Gift Creates Business Intern Program

Carol Anne Smullin Brown, her son Kevin Smullin Brown and Lucky Logger

Over the next five years, 150 undergraduate students in the School of Business will benefit from a recent gift of $400,000 from the Patricia D. & William B. Smullin Foundation.

This gift creates the Smullin Undergraduate Business Internships to compensate undergraduates for hands-on work experiences in local businesses, nonprofits, and government in Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity counties. The Foundation hopes the advantage of internship experience combined with actual monetary compensation will help the students establish their resumes and diminish their own debt while also benefitting the local entities that provide the internships.

This continues the Smullin Foundation’s commitment to HSU. The Foundation supports The Smullin Scholarship Endowment established in 1987, which now provides scholarships to eight students each year to cover most of their university fees. 

HSU sincerely thanks Carol Anne Smullin Brown, her son Kevin Smullin Brown, and the entire Board of the Smullin Foundation.
