University of Florida FCI Internship Application
The Florida Community Innovation Foundation (FCI) conducts groundbreaking work connecting Florida’s citizens with trusted information and resources to navigate challenging times. We do this by empowering young innovators to build innovative, human-centered technology and engage in public service projects that move the needle on resource access and other key issues that impact Floridians.

We envision a Florida where everyone has equal access to trusted information, critical services, and rewarding careers.

FCI was founded and is currently run by a volunteer team of young professionals.

FCI exists to empower young innovators to build scalable social services technology for their communities. We are a network of young professional volunteers and envision a Florida where everyone has equal access to trusted information, critical services, and rewarding careers. FCI works on projects that have a media component (e.g. public health behavioral nudge campaigns), a data science component (e.g. data stories about nonprofit services in Florida), and public service digital product components (e.g. the Florida Community Resource Map, an interactive, public-facing portal through which Floridians can quickly and conveniently locate key resources available to them, including but not limited to: healthcare, food and nutrition).

Interns interested in data science, design, user experience (UX), media, public service, civic engagement, outreach, engineering and/or product development would enjoy an internship at FCI. All majors and backgrounds welcome, especially students from traditionally underserved backgrounds and/or without a prior background in tech. This is a friendly environment to learn in while making a difference for Floridians.

Interns will be expected to attend a weekly in-person meeting in Marston Science Library (Wednesdays at 6 PM ET, with office hours and free work time before at 5 PM ET) and work asynchronously on other projects throughout the week. At the start of the internship, the intern will set learning goals, and then work on projects that address those learning goals while also furthering the mission of FCI.

Students interested in interning for approximately 5-10 hours a week should apply via this form by September 18 at 11:59 PM ET and sign up for a group interview via this form. Interns will also complete a task in the context of the interview (it'll be fun, we promise! Meant to simulate case interviews you might do later in your career). Interviews are on Zoom.

Interns will receive a $500 semester stipend from FCI.
