This eight-week learning immersion experience is awarded to an outstanding human rights undergraduate student completing a summer internship at Net Impact in San Francisco, CA. A $5,000 scholarship is provided to assist with expenses related to the internship. Open to all undergraduates at UConn, with preference given to Human Rights Majors and Minors.
Net Impact empowers a new generation to drive social and environmental change on campus and throughout their careers. They provide the network and resources to inspire emerging leaders to build successful “impact careers” — either by working in jobs dedicated to change or by bringing a social and environmental lens to traditional business roles.
As a Net Impact fellow, interns will get hands-on experience and access to a dedicated network of professionals, which will help you, develop critical business and communication skills you won’t learn in school, launch a career in socially responsible/sustainable business, nonprofit management, or social entrepreneurship, build a network of contacts and colleagues in a range of sectors and industries.
This internship is sponsored by the Eversource Energy Chair in Business Ethics.
Students interesting in creating positive social and environmental change in the workplace and the world should consider this internship.
Application Deadline: February 3
