Now Recruiting 2016 Summer Interns

The 2015 summer intern cohort

For seventeen years, the Cleveland Foundation Summer Internship program has stayed true to its goal of connecting undergraduate and graduate students with meaningful, career-related experiences in nonprofit and public sector agencies. The program adds value to the agencies by recruiting the talent and providing funding to pay the interns who conduct and complete important projects in our community.  

In early October, we issued a call to organizations to apply to host an intern. From the pool of more than 65 applications, we selected 19. The 19 projects showcase the depth, breadth and diversity of Cleveland’s nonprofit sector.

Sites range from the arts with DANCE Cleveland, education with Friends of Breakthrough Schools, economic development with the Cleveland Health – Tech Corridor and social service Cogswell Hall.  Interns can also experience the intersection of community development and sustainability at Burten Bell Carr Development Inc.

If you are a college student, graduate student or recent college graduate and can answer yes to the following questions, please consider applying:

  • Are you looking for a career-related work experience that could build your resume, skills and network?
  • Are you a student (a college junior, senior, graduate student or a graduated from college within the last year) of a local college or university (Cuyahoga, Lake, and Geauga counties) or a resident of Cuyahoga, Lake, and Geauga counties?
  • Do you have an interest in the nonprofit or public sector?

The deadline to apply is January 20th 2016, and the program runs from May 31st to August 12th. Visit our site for more information and complete registration to access the online application.  You can also check out blog posts from our past interns.
