Carlson Center Undergraduate Community Based Internships (UCBI) create outstanding partnerships between dedicated undergraduate students and non-profit and public sector organizations that are actively engaging in community-led work and reflecting on power, privilege, and oppression in the greater community and within their own organizations.

This program, funded by the University of Washington, invites collaboration and eliminates financial barriers: organizations receive support from dynamic, creative student interns, while students interested in public service are supported to explore this career path and learn from community partners.  In addition to mentoring and program support, each student is eligible to earn an educational stipend to support their engagement in this experience.

STUDENTS:

Students with an interest in learning more about non-profit and public sector careers, social justice, and asset based community development are encouraged to apply to join the 2018 UCBI Cohort. Application questions are available now, and our on-line application will open on October 9th with a due date of October 23rd at 11:59 pm.
