1) Funding and Internship Opportunity
The Community Impact Partnership Program (CIIP) is a competitive, paid summer internship program that selects 50 JHU undergraduate students to be paired with nonprofit organizations, community organizations, and government agencies throughout Baltimore City, and offers an intensive, cohort-based learning environment. Internships focus on community-identified projects and are selected for each student based on their skills and interests, providing a unique and individualized experience. In addition to interning in the community, the program includes an extensive orientation program and weekly reflection sessions with presentations to familiarize interns with Baltimore’s past and present.
Interns will work 35 hours a week for 8 weeks and earn a $4000 salary. The dates for this year’s program are June 4th – August 4th, 2018. CIIP is available to current JHU Freshman through Juniors. The application for the 2018 Community Impact Internships Program (CIIP) is available at http://studentaffairs.jhu.edu/socialconcern/programs/ciip/interns/
The deadline for application submissions is December 22nd, 2017.
The goal of this program is two-fold; to give JHU undergraduates an opportunity to be directly involved in a community in Baltimore City, and to support the important work being done by nonprofits and government agencies. The CIIP is housed within the Center for Social Concern at the Johns Hopkins University, and is made possible through a generous gift of $2.25 million from a private donor.
