Rutgers University - Transition for Youth & SHIP

The Summer Housing and Internship Program (SHIP) is a twelve-week program from May/early June to August that offers an alternative to recipients of the New Jersey Foster Care (NJFC) scholarship who lack the financial, family and social connections to secure safe and stable housing during the summer months. 40 New Jersey Foster Scholars are given the opportunity to receive quality housing (at either Rutgers' Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark campuses, or Montclair State University) and paid internship positions throughout the summer months. SHIP also offers a 3-credit course, counseling, weekly workshops, and recreational activities.
