Today’s college students find themselves in a tricky situation:  it’s basically impossible to get a job without some sort of internship experience, but not everyone can afford to spend a summer working for free. One solution is, of course, paid internships — but too often non-profits and community organizations are already operating on shoestring budgets, and so can’t afford to pay a student for summer work.

But thanks to a mysterious, anonymous donor, students at Johns Hopkins have a way to earn money, rack up experience, and benefit their community. Each year since 2011, 50 students have signed on to work at Hopkins Community Impact Internships. They lots of support as they spend the summer working for Baltimore-based non-profits aimed at making the city a safer, cleaner, greener place — oh, and they also get $5,000.

So how can Hopkins (or other schools) find their next Bloombergs? Step one:  don’t ignore the C-students.
