Health + Humanities Internship Funding

Summer Internships Focused on Healing Through Narrative: Lewis & Clark students who have a summer internship in health + humanities are eligible to apply for funding to support their work.

Up to three students will be awarded funding to support internships in health + humanities with  organizations that contribute to healing through narrative. This support is made possible by the Center for Community and Global Health and a grant from Mellon Foundation. 



Applications for Summer 2024 internship funding open April 1 and will close May 15.  

Think your summer plans might be eligible for financial support? Great! Answer the following questions to find out:

  • Have you found an internship you’re excited about at the intersection of health + humanities? We encourage applicants to think boldly and broadly about this definition!
  • Is the organization you will be interning with local to Oregon or does its work support people locally?
  • Is the internship position unpaid or underfunded?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, you are a good candidate for funding!
