Internships That Launch Successful Careers

More than 350 institutions of higher education partner with Royall & Company, a strategic marketing firm and a subsidiary of The Advisory Board Company, to recruit students and achieve fundraising goals. If you are a rising college senior interested in a paid summer internship where you will work alongside experienced professionals as well as your intern colleagues, Royall & Company is the place for you.

Hear what last year’s Royall interns had to say:

“I feel like people at most companies don’t end up liking their internships. They aren’t given enough work, they’re given too much or the atmosphere isn’t what they’re looking for. But Royall feels just right. I feel like I’ve grown professionally to a greater degree than I ever have in such a short span and made some great friends along the way.”

— Alex Foster

“My team throughout this process could not have been more helpful, welcoming and overall wonderful to me as an intern. I feel like I’ve learned a lot, not only about higher education and how Royall & Company works but also how to work in a team and function in the corporate world.”

— Jenna Taylor

“Overall, the internship at Royall has been a great experience. Not only have I learned a lot but the work I do is actually necessary for my department. It feels great knowing that what I am working on is important.”

— Cody Johnson


Our summer internship program is open to rising college seniors with an expected graduation date between December 2016 and September 2017. The deadline for applications is December 31, 2015. If you have questions, please email us at
