Are you ready to intern within a Nonprofit or Social Venture this Fall?

If yes, apply to the Shattuck Family Internship Program for Entrepreneurship Innovation and Social Change.  DEADLINE TO APPLY:  Friday, July 28th

The Shattuck Family Internship Program for Entrepreneurship Innovation and Social Change prepares UMBC students for the rigors and rewards of entrepreneurship and social innovation. This program places highly-motivated students from diverse backgrounds in mentored internships to better prepare them to launch nonprofit or social ventures. Students get training and experience to empower them to become the next generation of social entrepreneurs–working largely in the not-for-profit world, developing and delivering innovative solutions to some of our region’s most urgent social problems.

Internships last one semester (15 weeks) and students will work, on average, 8 to 10 hours per week. Students receive a stipend of $1,500 toward their compensation. In addition to the internship, students engage in projects and activities that further expose them to the social entrepreneurial mindset.

Why Participate?
- Earn a competitive stipend of $1,500 plus an opportunity to potentially earn credit and obtain up to $5,000 for a scholarship or seed funding for a new venture or community-based social entrepreneurship projects
- Gain valuable experience in your career field by interning 120 hours over the course of the semester (8-10 hours per week)
- Be exposed to the knowledge, skills, and mindset required to successfully launch and manage a nonprofit/social venture
- Develop a network of contacts in the nonprofit community for future references and opportunities
- Apply classroom knowledge in a realistic work environment and apply lessons learned in the workplace to academic coursework

Interested students are asked to submit a Resume and a Cover Letter answering the following questions:
Discuss your interest in social entrepreneurship/nonprofit leadership and this intern program.  What has been your entrepreneurial involvement thus far such as coursework, seminars, etc. (if applicable)?  What type of nonprofit would you like to intern for and why?
