The Irwin W. Steans Center for Community-based Service Learning and Community Service Studies is accepting applications for the McCormick Community Internship for the 2012-2013 academic year.
The McCormick Foundation has generously established an endowment at DePaul's Steans Center in order to provide funding for internships in community-based organizations that allow DePaul undergraduates to apply their knowledge and skills to benefit an organization while simultaneously providing the student with valuable work experience. This internship is reserved for our best and brightest DePaul junior and senior undergraduates who have exhibited a commitment to community action, service, and academic excellence from all disciplines and departments at DePaul.
Successful applicants will have developed a project in collaboration with a community organization that can take up to three-quarters to complete and utilize their individual talents, experiences and academic expertise. Applicants are encouraged to develop an independent study with a faculty member that links the internship experience to academic learning. Interns receive up to $1,200 per academic quarter, the final payment of which is contingent upon the delivery of a final product (e.g., a report for a community organization). At the end of the quarter, McCormick interns will present their final projects at the Service Speaks banquet to be held in May 2013. The presentations will highlight the work they did at the organization with clear demonstration of an achieved goal.
