How can I support cadet internships at my company?
Every summer, more than 100 cadets intern at organizations and companies around the country. These internships, which typically last for three to four weeks, are customized according to cadets’ academic concentration and give them the exceptional opportunity to apply their skills in a business setting. The benefits from observing day to day operations, participating in decision making processes, and witnessing managerial expertise are invaluable in developing leaders for the 21st century.
If you would like to sponsor a cadet to become part of your team for the summer, contact us at 845.446.1556.

Why does West Point need private funding?
While West Point’s core academic, military, and physical development programs receive federal support, many projects and activities that are of great value but that fall outside of the “core” designation receive minimal to zero funding from the government. Thus, the fundraising efforts of West Point Association of Graduates sustain and build the Academy’s excellence in military, academic, and physical education programs.
WPAOG is the Academy’s fundraising arm because military personnel and representatives of the federal government are prohibited by law from soliciting funds, goods, or services.
