About the Pearce Interns

Business and industry leaders place a premium on writing and communication skills. The state of South Carolina offers a generous supplement to the Life Scholarship for students majoring in math, science, or engineering. The Pearce Communication Intern Program aims to match that supplement for students working in the fields of writing and communication.

The variety of opportunities within the Pearce Communication Intern Program also allows for students to pursue objectives most valuable to their educations and future careers. Whether through working as a Pearce Center Intern, a Writing Fellow, or a member of the Client Based Program, the Pearce Center Communication Intern Program benefits an incredible number of students on Clemson’s campus.

Writing Fellow

Writing Fellows seek to not only produce better writing, but better writers. They offer useful written feedback for fellow students' drafts and meet with them one-on-one. Writing Fellows seek to get everyone engaged with the writing process.

Client Based Program

The Client-Based Program matches local clients who need communication deliverables with Clemson classes. Students in these classes work in teams to create the deliverables needed to meet the client's needs.
