Priority Deadline (Winter break/J-Term) experiences: Wednesday, December 2nd
Application and information at go/cccs.
CCCS grants support international community service, advocacy, and activism. The fund supports international service-learning and community-building internships and/or related volunteer service experiences for undergraduate students. These internships and service initiatives may be student designed; preference is given to those opportunities in a culture distinctly different from the applicant’s background. You can utilize this fund for both virtual and in-person short-term opportunities such as a school break or longer-term projects (J-Term or semester-long). For more information visit go/cccs.
Optional info session to learn more about the grants and application process: Tuesday 11/10 3:30 p.m. eastern time, register here to get the Zoom meeting link.

CHCI’s Congressional Internship Program (CIP) is a paid 10-week full-time internship, where participants gain experiential learning opportunities through working on Capitol Hill, which will allow them to learn firsthand how the legislative system operates by performing significant work duties:·
- Responding to constituent inquiries
- Writing policy briefs
- Conducting legislative research on issues such as education, health, foreign affairs, defense, science & technology, and more
- Attending congressional hearings and policy briefings
In addition to congressional experience, CHCI provides weekly programming centered around a graduate-level non-credit public policy course taught by The George Washington University Cisneros Hispanic Leadership Institute and Trachtenberg School of Public Policy.
Programming builds off the public policy course with engaging and insightful conversations with accomplished Latino leaders from a variety of sectors, training on skills that help interns succeed on Capitol Hill and beyond, and sessions designed to expand interns’ awareness and knowledge about current issues that affect the Latino community.
The program is designed to provide the skills, knowledge, and network that will help graduates continue their work to improving the Latino community and, by extension, the nation.

From Professor Molly Anderson: “If anybody is interested in this, please let me know (mollya[at]middlebury.edu)! No pay, but you might be able to turn it into a credit J-term internship.”
“Amanda Landry, who is the owner and farmer of Cream Hill Stock Farm, and a grad student at UNH in the Community Development Policy and Practice program is working on her community capstone project. As such, Amanda is working with ACORN on the logistical side of the second iteration of the online market for farmers and food producers. She is in the research phase of the project and was wondering if she could collaborate with Middlebury College students to implement a survey of local eaters/residents/students.
For background info., Amanda was a participating producer in ACORN’s trial online market this spring so has some relevant hands-on insight into what works and what doesn’t from the producer’s perspective.
We’re hoping to launch the market in the spring, so this project could run through the fall and into the winter. We look forward to hearing from you, and if you think this is a good fit for any of your students.”
Middlebury students, if you’re interested in working with Amanda on this project, please reach out to Middlebury Food Studies Professor Molly Anderson. It could be a for-credit Winter Term internship.
