Our internship programs have been developed to widen and deepen Haverford's connections with social change organizations and to encourage a collaborative approach to pressing social, cultural and ethical concerns. Interns have worked with a variety of organizations, and have helped to address a wide array of social issues. Many internships have resulted in long-term relationships between Haverford students and their host countries or communities. All internships must demonstrate one or more of the following characteristics:
- An intellectually critical engagement with the pressing issues of our day, and with ways to address those issues;
- A commitment to deepening the applicant's understanding of cultural difference, and of the ways that local communities are affected by global processes;
- Engagement with issues of power and inequality.

Note: The College will not fund projects in locations on the State Department warning list. Also, international students cannot be funded in their passport country of issue (unless a dual citizen) due to the policy of the College's emergency medical insurance provider.
