The Asa S. Bushnell Internship Program was established in honor of the ECAC’s first commissioner, who served as ECAC commissioner from 1938-1970. The internships are geared toward providing each individual a diverse experience of athletics administration in the hope of providing a strong foundation for a career in athletics. Each year several interns from member institutions apply and interview at the ECAC. Interns are selected in the fields of hockey, communications, marketing, championships and rowing and complete their nine-month internship from September to May.
