Civic House Internship Funds and Internship Programs

Civic House can help prepare you to pursue a career in the not-for-profit world, government, education, and other public interest fields.


Civic House Philadelphia Nonprofit Internship Program

The Civic House Philadelphia Nonprofit Internship Program is designed to assist the work of Philadelphia area nonprofit organizations through providing funds to University of Pennsylvania undergraduates to support semester- and summer-long internships at the organization.  The Civic House Philadelphia Nonprofit Internship Program enables students to learn more about the work that area nonprofits are involved in while actively participating in the Philadelphia community in a productive and meaningful way.  Semester interns work 10 hours/week while summer interns work 30 hours/week. The application process for summer 2014 internships is now closed. Please check back in March 2015 for updated information. To learn more about this program and its placements check out this page.

Civic House Public Interest Internship Funds

The Civic House Public Interest Internship Funds provide support for selected University of Pennsylvania students who have secured summer positions in the nonprofit or public sectors. It is the goal of these Funds to enable students who rely on summer earnings to participate in unfunded nonprofit internships that they would otherwise be unable to accept. While all eligible students are encouraged to apply, preference will be given to students with demonstrated financial need.  Prospective interns may apply for full-time or part-time support; the number of students selected and the amount of support provided will ultimately depend upon the applicant pool.  Please note that we do not fund internships with for profit organizations. The application process for these funds is now closed until March 2015 and more information can be found here.   

Congratulations to the 2015 Public Interest Internship Funds recipients!
