Noyce Summer Internship Program

Do you enjoy working with youth?  Are you considering a career in teaching? Would you like to earn a little extra cash this summer?

If you answered yes to one of these questions, then the Noyce Summer Internship Program maybe for you.

The VCU National Science Foundation funded Noyce Initiative is sponsoring the Noyce Summer Internship Program to pique STEM majors’ interest in pursuing a career in teaching. As an intern, you will be given an opportunity to work with middle and/or high school students and teachers through one of three STEM pipeline and outreach programs.  Interns will receive a $500 stipend in exchange for your commitment to work for one week (40 hours) during the summer with one of the programs.Interns will assist with lesson preparation and delivery. We believe this relatively low stress exposure will serve as a positive experience to begin building interest in a career in teaching.

Please see the link below to apply for the program.  Applications are due by May 31st.

Fund for the Public Interest

Make a difference on issues that matter this summer with the Fund for the Public Interest!

What are you planning to do with your summer? Do you want to make a real difference, working to protect the environment or public health? Do you want to gain real-world experience and pick up valuable skills? Do you want to make good money?

Apply for a job with the Fund this summer, and you could get all of that and more. We’re a national, non-profit organization that builds the people power for America’s leading environmental and social change organizations.

We’re hiring in over 30 cities across the country this summer to raise money and get thousands of people to take action. You’ll make a real difference on important issues. You may be working to help stop global warming, fight fracking, get factory farms to stop overusing antibiotics or standing up for clean water, just to name a few.

You’ll gain real-world experience and learn valuable skills. Making change happen isn’t easy, but history has shown time and again that when we build enough people power we can win. But to do that we need people who have the skills and leadership ability to get things done. And that’s what you’ll learn with the Fund.

We have a great training program. Training starts the first day, and it continues throughout your time on staff.

You will have the opportunity to learn how to lead a team, run news conferences, all while developing your public speaking skills, raising money and motivating people to get involved and take action. Skills that will be valuable, no matter what kind of job you want in the future.

And, you’ll make good money.

Many people are faced with a tough choice for how to spend their summer. Do I earn money by waiting tables, painting houses or making lattes, or do I take that unpaid internship so I can get real-world experience, or work on something I care about. You don’t have to make that choice.

You can make $4,500-$6,500 this summer while doing something you actually believe in. All while gaining the skills and experience you need to help you succeed in the future.

This is not your typical summer job, but if you’re looking for a great experience where you can make a real difference, and work with some great people along the way, then apply for a summer job with The Fund.

We will be holding information sessions and interviews on Virginia Commonwealth’s campus on Monday 3/21, Tuesday 3/22, and Wednesday 3/23.
Information session locations:
All sessions will be located in VCU Student Commons (907 Floyd Avenue) Metro Room on the 1st floor.

Wed Mar 23, 2016 – 2pm, 4pm, and 6pm
Thur Mar 24, 2016 – 10am, 2pm, 4pm, and 6pm
