Funded Remote Micro-Internships!

Remote Micro-Internships for Humanities Students

We’ve teamed up with local nonprofits to create a series of spring “micro-internship” projects that are designed specifically for CWRU humanities students! Each internship will vary in length and scope, but all of them fall within these parameters:

  • All projects are remote (no in-person contact)
  • All projects require and develop humanities skills
  • Each internship totals 40 – 60 hours of work
  • Each internship will last 4 -10 weeks
  • Internships begin no earlier than March 1 and will end by May 7

Students who are successfully matched with a project will receive a $500 stipend. The funding is provided by the Baker-Nord Center and the Office of Post-Graduate Planning.
