The Wilson Center Funded Internship Program was launched in 2009 and places up to 15 Pace University students in full-time, paid summer internships with New York social enterprises and human service nonprofit organizations each year.

The Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship was created in 2005 to serve the nonprofit and social enterprise community and Pace University. Devoted to honing the risk-taking spirit and managerial skills of nonprofit organizations and social ventures, the Center was launched with a pledge from Helene and Grant Wilson, Boston-area entrepreneurs and philanthropists whose philanthropic endeavors convinced them that entrepreneurial management can help social ventures increase their impact.
