Eligibility and Requirements
All Transform internships are a full academic year (Fall 2019 – Spring 2020). This will allow you to develop enough familiarity with your internship site in order to adequately develop and apply new knowledge and skills. In order to be eligible for a Transform Internship, you must be able to commit to your internship for a full academic year. Some internships are paid, most are unpaid.
You must register for the Transform internship course (GNDR 5990) during the duration of your internship (Fall 2019 and Spring 2020). All students should register for 3 credits unless you arrange a different credit requirement with the Transform advisor. Once you are placed at your internship site, you will receive a permission code to add the GNDR 5990 course for Fall 2019. The internship course will count towards Gender Studies and Ethnic Studies degrees.
You can apply for up to three (3) internships. The Academic Advisor will ensure that all students who apply for an internship are placed with an organization. The application period is a rolling application until August 1st with a priority placement deadline of Friday, June 21.
Carefully read the internship descriptions for each of the organizations and submit all requested application materials. Please make note if you need to attend any summer/fall training before the academic year begins. If a cover letter is requested, make sure to explain why you are interested in the particular organization, explain any particular skills or knowledge that make you a good candidate for the internship and share what you hope to gain from the internship. Visit the Career and Professional Development Center for more tips and templates for resumes and cover letters.
Please submit the required application material to the supervisor(s) for the organization(s) you would like to intern AND cc the Transform Academic Advisor, Jen Wozab, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
