In response to students’ evolving situations regarding their internships this summer, the GW Hillel staff is excited to introduce the GW Hillel Summer Internship Program. 


Our 4 week, cohort based remote internship program will give you the opportunity to grow professionally, gain work experience, and add valuable skills to your resume while making a difference for fellow Jewish students and the GW Hillel community. 

There will be two cohorts for this unpaid internship for which you can apply: June 1-June 26 and July 6-July 31, with an estimated 10-15 hours per week. In addition to your primary project and responsibilities, all interns will participate in the following professional development skill building workshops and Jewish Industry Leader Seminar conversations featuring GW alumni.

You will also be paired off with a professional mentor to have weekly calls to discuss your work and professional aspirations. 

Interested in just joining us for the professional development sessions? Or have an interest in a field or topic not listed here- let us know and we can try to connect you with alumni who might be seeking interns!
