About the Summer Scholar Program

From day one, the Summer Scholar Program offers candidates total immersion in agency life. The selected individual will be given the opportunity to work with some of DEVENEY’s most notable clients, including The Windsor Court Hotel, Emeril’s Homebase Restaurants, Children’s Hospital and many others.

“The Summer Scholar Program helped me expand my skills in a setting that fosters leadership, teamwork and professionalism. I was able to explore my career interests with legitimate client work while also discovering and finetuning abilities I didn’t even know I had—everyday at DEVENEY was a new and engaging learning experience,” recalled Tasha Andre (Syracuse University ’17), DEVENEY’s 2017 Summer Scholar.

DEVENEY provides weekly compensation, transportation to and from New Orleans, as well as temporary housing for the entirety of the program (the summer term). Not only will the Summer Scholar be given the opportunity to experience and participate in agency life, but he or she will also be welcomed with open arms into the Big Easy, the New York Times’ top place to visit in 2018.
