Saint Francis University’s administrative information system software vendor, Jenzabar, Inc., services over 1,300 colleges and universities around the world. In 2017, they launched the Jenzabar Internship Program and funded fifty paid summer internships to colleges across the nation. This highly competitive program accepts just one nomination per institution. If selected, the institution receives a Jenzabar-funded grant that pays for the student’s full-time summer internship for that student to work on a Jenzabar solution-based project. Jenzabar is looking for students that posses positivity, diligence, enthusiasm for learning and communication skills.
