Research Internships & Fellowships for Wellesley College Students
The Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) is pleased to offer five internships during both the summer and the academic year to Wellesley College students who seek to make a difference in the world through research and action. Students placed in The Class of 1967 Internship Program gain hands-on social science research experience while working closely with a WCW research scientist who acts as a mentor.
How To Apply:
All opportunities with The Class of 1967 Internship Program require that the student become acquainted with the mission and work of WCW. In their application, the student must identify a researcher at WCW to serve as their mentor. We recommend that any student interested in applying for 2018-2019 internships/fellowships meet with the WCW research scientist with whom they hope to work.
Any registered Wellesley College student with a GPA of at least 3.0 may apply for The Class of 1967 Internship Program. To qualify for the academic year internships, students must be registered at the College during the year of the internship. Students do not have to register for summer classes to be eligible for The Anne Murray Ladd Student Internship.
Applications for the 2018-2019 Class of 1967 Internship Program are due by 9:00 a.m. on April 6, 2018. To apply, the student is asked to submit a statement of 2-3 pages, which includes the following:
- The internship opportunity for which the student is applying and why.
- Career goals and any relevant academic or work experience.
- What the student would like to accomplish through this experience
In addition to the above, the student must also submit a letter of recommendation from a member of the Wellesley College faculty or their advisor. A copy of the student's Wellesley College transcript must accompany the application. Students selected as recipients of WCW internships receive a $3,000 stipend.
