What is an ACSJL Internship?
ACSJL Summer 2014 Internship Stipends: Apply by April 18 at 2 PM
This summer, the ACSJL will support summer social justice internships, but not in direct partnership with its network of social justice organization. Instead, seven applications with strong social justice components will be selected from the pool of Independent Internship applications, and these seven will receive ACSJL stipends. Students who wish to be considered for these ACSJL stipends should:
- ensure that their internships meet the criteria of the Field Experience Program (FEP): http://reason.kzoo.edu/ccd/programs/internships/independentinternships/
- review and follow the instructions and information for the online FEP Independent Internship grant application: http://reason.kzoo.edu/ccd/programs/internships/independentinternships/applicationprocess/
- pay particular attention in their application to this section of the question about outcomes: How will you engage with communities impacted by structural inequity through capacity?building and community?organizing work? How will you acquire skills to work for community transformation and a more just, equitable and sustainable world? (Review the application scoring rubric here: http://reason.kzoo.edu/ccd/assets/FEP_Grant_Selection_Rubric_1_10_14.pdf)
After the application deadline (April 18, 2 PM), the ACSJL will review applications and select seven (7) applicants to receive ACSJL Internship stipends.
Questions about preparing application materials should be directed to the ACSJL's Karla Aguilar. Questions about the summer 2014 ACSJL stipend disbursement process should be directed to the CCPD's Terri Raich.
ACSJL facilitated internship opportunities with an extensive network of exemplary social justice organizations will return for summer 2015.
