Benefits to Interns (Resource Here)

Internships are a rewarding learning experiences that help guide future decisions and professional growth. Internships provide opportunities for students to apply what they have learned in school to the work setting and vice versa. Specifically, internships:

  • Offer relevant work experience
  • Provide a real-life context for issues they are studying about in school
  • Aid in developing specific skills like resume building, work readiness skills, and soft skills
  • Help students evaluate potential career fields
  • Assist with building a professional network

Compensation: If students do not receive school credit for their internship, they receive a stipend. If they get a partial stipend (less than $6,500 for undergrads or less than $7,500 for grad students), we will make up the difference to reach the full amount. Interns are paid on the same schedule as ACLU employees. We are paid mid-month and end of month.
