Student Summer Internship Grants
Summer Internship Grants
Global Migrations Summer Internship Grants assist students with the costs of interning at non-profit, non-governmental organizations that work with refugees, migrant workers, new immigrants, and other displaced persons, and/or are concerned with transnational migration, human rights, citizenship, security, and other social justice issues that arise from the movements of persons across national and cultural boundaries.
Global Migrations Program
- The Global Migrations Program is a grant-funded initiative at Hampshire College to rethink old paradigms of knowledge, citizenship, and security in the light of historical and contemporary movements of persons across national and cultural boundaries.
- The program seeks to develop an innovative undergraduate curriculum that is responsive to these transnational/cultural movements and the conflicts over identity, community, and citizenship to which they give rise.
- The grant supports faculty development and student work that attempts to bridge divides between local social/political issues and complex global processes; between the university and the wider communities of which it is a part; and/or across traditional disciplinary and areas studies divides within the academy.
- The goal of the program is to develop a new community-based model of teaching and learning that engenders not only global literacy, but a sense of global citizenship.
These internships offer students opportunities to:
- gain experience working for a non-profit, non-governmental organization
- get paid for work they care about and find interesting
- learn about grant writing, research skills, community organizing, and other aspects of transnational social justice/social change work
Who is eligible?
- Hampshire College students at the Division II or III level
