Bonner Foundation Accepting Applications for Summer Interns

The Bonner Foundation is excited to provide summer internship opportunities for up to four students during summer 2014. Each Bonner student selected will focus on a specific issue selected by the Foundation. These issues (college access, poverty-related, early education, civic engagement) are where the majority of Bonner students across the network are focusing their service hours.    Over the course of the summer, interns will find best practices of how programs and students are tackling issues in the Bonner Network, conduct research on trends and efforts of national organizations and the federal government, combine all research to create an issue brief, travel to D.C. and N.Y.C. to develop strategic relationships with national organizations, and assist the program staff in executing  multiple national conferences and gatherings of the Bonner Network.
This internship placement is located in Princeton, New Jersey at The Bonner Foundation, lasts 8-10 weeks, and has tentative dates of June 5 until July 31. The is a paid internship opportunity that includes a $2,800 stipend package ($1000 for housing and $1800 for summer earnings) that will be provided by the Foundation.  If a Bonner attends a scholar school, their summer of service funding will assist in funding the full package.
