The In Community Interns Federal Work Study program, administered by the Center for Social Concern, guides Federal Work Study–eligible JHU students to support community-based agencies while earning a financial award. Students may apply to be placed with an approved organization and gain the skills and community connections afforded by a nonprofit internship at no cost to the community partner organization.
Undergraduates of all majors are eligible to apply. All positions require a full Federal Work Study award of $2,700. Accepted candidates will be compensated $15/hour and will be required to work five hours each week of the fall and spring semesters with their partner, as well as participate in monthly two-hour training and reflection sessions with the CSC and members of the In Community Interns cohort. Trainings will focus on CSC core areas of civic engagement, Baltimore history and social issues, active citizenship, and cultural humility.
Positions for the 2023-24 academic year include placements with 901 Arts, the Community School, Greenmount West Community Association, and more to be confirmed.
The first step is submitting a general interest application on SMILE (Position #11441). Applicants will then be invited to apply on Hopkins Engage to specific intern positions. The application on Hopkins Engage itself will only take 30 minutes to complete, so we encourage you to apply by Aug. 28.
