In recognition of current and future gifts from Glenn W. '75 and Heidi A. '75 Patterson, Willamette University establishes the Glenn and Heidi Patterson Professional Internship Fund in order to ensure students receive valuable pre-professional business skills to complement the rich educational experiences in the Willamette liberal arts curriculum. 

Glenn and Heidi Patterson received their Bachelor of Arts degrees from Willamette in 1975, majoring in Economics and Biology respectively. They have established this special internship fund to ensure students receive valuable experiences through internships that will allow recipients to gain practical work experience, develop new and transferable skills, gain confidence in their abilities, explore a prospective career path, and network with business professionals to enhance future career opportunities. 

First priority of this grant will be for all Juniors and/or Seniors enrolled in the College of Arts & Sciences who are working as interns at for-profit business organizations. If, in any given year, no students match this criterion, compensation may be given to any student with internships at non- or not-for-profit businesses.
