Internship Opportunities

The Task Force on Faith-Based and Community Initiatives is looking for undergraduate, graduate or law students interested in justice-related social service grantmaking or constitutional law and eager to assist with projects related to the Task Force's mission, which is to identify and overcome barriers that impede the full participation of faith- and community-based nonprofits in the Department's grants process.  The successful applicant will have strong research, writing, computer, and communication skills.  An interest in the administration's Faith-Based and Community Initiative is also desirable but not required.

Possible assignments include research projects related to policy and legal issues, writing informational materials about the Task Force's activities, mission and programs, and assistance with data collection.
