30 Internship Programs You Should Know

Thanks for the folks at US Black Engineer magazine for curating this list! If you are searching for internship opportunities, here are 30 internship programs you should know!

Gates Center Middlebury Stem Cell Research Intern

Apply in Handshake. Deadline SUNDAY 1/7/18 at 11:59 pm.

In 2015, the Charles C. Gates Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology in Denver, Colorado initiated a new program called the Gates Center Summer Internship Program. The goal of the program is to encourage outstanding undergraduates to consider careers in stem cell research by providing state of the art training opportunities at the Gates Center. Using adult stem cells, students work with research teams to develop therapies across a wide range of areas including Dermatology, Orthopedics, Oncology and Neurology. Scholars attend biweekly lectures given by the Gates Center faculty and present their work at the end of their internship at a poster presentation session. In both Summer 2016 and 2017 we selected two outstanding students for the program, and this summer we will again select two Middlebury Gates Summer Scholars to spend 10 weeks interning in laboratories on the University of Colorado Medical Campus. The internship is full time (June 1 to August 10, 2018) and you will receive a stipend of $3600.00.

The application process is competitive and open to current Sophomores and Juniors. In order to apply, your GPA must be at least 3.60, but students selected for GSIP typically have GPA’s around 3.80.

Pre-Med Students: Don’t Miss the Medical School Applicant Panel and MCAT Peer Advice Panel 1/16

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 from 6:00-8:00 pm in Hillcrest 103

The Health Professions and STEM team is excited to welcome a panel of recent Middlebury College medical school applicants back to campus. Come hear about the application process from students who just went through the cycle. Ask them questions about the interview process (traditional and Multiple Mini Interviews or MMI) and find out what they wish they had known before applying to medical school.

Following the alumni panel, you’ll also hear from a group of your peers who took the MCATs this past summer. The Pre-Medical Society will ask them to share their study schedules, what materials they found useful, what tricks and tips they found to be helpful and test-day strategies.

What a great opportunity to hear about the application process from those who have just gone through it!

Pizza will be provided!

Privilege & Poverty National SHECP Internship

Since 2005, Middlebury College has participated in the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty (SHECP) to support students in summer internships with agencies that seek to work alongside vulnerable populations. Internships are available to non-graduating Middlebury students and are located in urban and rural settings throughout the United States with agencies that serve in educational, healthcare, legal, housing, social and economic capacities for the needs of individuals and their communities.

The SHECP integrates rigorous academic study and focused direct service to disadvantaged communities and persons, enriching the education of undergraduate students in all majors and career paths. This national summer internship program is the flagship program of SHECP, providing students with opportunities to blend theory and practice.

At Middlebury, the internship program is part of our Privilege & Poverty Academic Cluster. Privilege & Poverty is a curricular initiative that brings together faculty, students, and staff interested in studying economic inequality—its causes, its effects on human communities and the environment, and even the language with which we talk about the “privileged” and the “poor.” P&P engages students in issue-based learning in a dynamic and interdisciplinary format, one that combines the resources from many traditional departments and programs with “real world” internships in agencies working to alleviate poverty. Privilege & Poverty takes your first-rate Middlebury education and applies it directly to one of the world’s most vexing social problems.

Applicants who are selected for this internship will become will become a part of a Privilege & Poverty cohort that will prepare together during spring semester, participate in the summer internship, regroup for reflection upon their return to campus, and have options to engage in additional pursuits throughout the academic year.

Internships offered in: Healthcare, Law, Economic Development, Education, Environmental Justice, Housing, Hunger, Women’s Advocacy, Youth Programs, the Arts, and more.

Sample locations include: Boston; New York; Washington, DC; Phillips County, Arkansas; Navajo Reservation, Arizona; Atlanta, GA; Burlington, Vt; Camden, NJ; Cleveland, OH; Louisville, KY; New York, NY Chester, PA; Austin, TX; Lexington and Richmond, VA; Charleston, WV; and more.

For a complete list of internship offerings and job descriptions visit the Privilege & Poverty website (go/privnpov) and view the internship information. Applicants need to research the internships offered and identify their top three choices as part of the application process. The SHECP program coordinator will then review and finalize placements with each accepted intern.

Requirements:

  1. Demonstrated interest in poverty alleviation;
  2. Academic experience in the study of poverty and/or poverty-related themes. (Some preference will be given to students who have taken INTD/RELI 298 Privilege & Poverty, but the course is not a requirement to apply.)

  4. Self-motivated, reliable, and able to work both independently and with a team;
