The Wellesley Centers for Women offers a number of opportunities for Wellesley College students to work with our research scientists, project directors, and administrative staff. These students serve as research assistants, as administrative assistants, or as interns through the Class of 1967 Internship Program and other Wellesley College internship programs. Students who work with our research scientists have opportunities to help with data collection and analysis, contribute to academic journal articles, attend conferences, and present alongside their mentors. Students in administrative roles get a behind-the-scenes look at social justice work while supporting our action projects, external relations initiatives, and other WCW teams. 


Working at WCW is a unique opportunity for undergraduates to get firsthand experience with research and action that drives social change. Learn more about the work students have done at WCW:
