Summer Internships

This 8-week virtual internship (keep scrolling to get to the internship descriptions) will give you professional experience while also making a difference for fellow Jewish students at UD. 

 

This internship is unpaid, and will begin on June 22nd. It will be an estimated 7-10 hours of work per week, which includes a weekly one-on-one check-in with a staff member and one meeting per week with all of the interns for community building, idea sharing, and professional development. Priority will be given to students who do not have another internship this summer.

Looking for a different type of internship than we have proposed? You also have the option of proposing your own internship. This internship should both benefit you and Hillel. If you want to talk through an idea before submitting it, feel free to reach out to Hilary at hjampel@udel.edu.

 

All students are encouraged to apply, and prior participation with Hillel and student leadership with the Jewish community are not required.
