Agency Partners

Nonprofit Agency Work Placement

While engaged in full-time graduate study, Trinity fellows work in professional, substantive projects or positions designed by selected nonprofit organizations in Milwaukee. These agency-based work assignments are considered off-campus graduate assistantships, and occupy fellows 18 hours per week during each academic year and 40 hours per week during the summer between academic years.

Agency Partners

In any given year, we have 20-25 active agency partnerships. Most of the agency sites are located within five miles of Marquette's campus.

Since our program began in 2000, more than sixty Milwaukee nonprofit agencies have partnered with us, providing a broad range of opportunities for fellows to work and contribute in the Milwaukee community:
