Details and Eligibility
The CPGC internship includes a rigorous application process, a pre-departure weekend-long orientation (April 5-7, 2013), and enrollment in a course upon return to campus. This course will help students integrate their experience into political, historical and cultural contexts.
CPGC internships ideally span 8-10 weeks. Interns are expected to work full time (35-40 hours per week) for their host organization. CPGC covers intern’s costs, including travel, local transportation, required vaccinations, visas, food, housing; CPGC also provides the summer earnings expectation for students who receive financial aid.
All returning interns are also encouraged to become involved in the work of the CPGC by participating in group projects, attending public talks, sharing their experiences with the campus community and designing their own projects for which they can apply to receive support through the many facets of the Center's programming funds.
