Each year we offer internships for students and community members to support our mission and values. Internships take place during the fall, spring and summer semesters and include a stipend. We welcome applications from community members not currently enrolled in a college or university, recent college graduates, and undergraduate and graduate students.

The Grants Research Intern facilitates the completion of grant writing by researching grant opportunities, preparing grant narratives and maintaining 540’s internal grants database. 

We are currently accepting applications for the Spring 2022 semester.
