|CPS STUDENTS - PLEASE SPEAK TO THE INTERNSHIP COORDINATOR FOR YOUR PROGRAM BEFORE APPLYING FOR AN INTERNSHIP|
If you sign up for internship credits without first discussing the internship with the internship coordinator/department chair, you may be dropped without notice.
All internship programs have their own internal calendar. You cannot start too early to research the application cycle and procedure of the type of internship you are interested in; for example it is not too early to start researching a year ahead for a national, competitive program.
Although some of these programs may no longer be available, we leave the information here to provide ideas because the same organization may now run a related program - if the link for a specific program from a past year doesn't work, search for the organization itself and visit the internship/fellowship pages to check for anything current.

By placing students to serve as summer fellows in leading Southern foundations and non-profit organizations concerned with fairness and improvements in education policy and practice, SEF sought to create new leaders to help the South continue its progress in improving educational equity and opportunity for all.|
Since 2004, 185 students from leading Southern colleges and universities have participated in what is known today as the Southern Education Leadership Initiative (SELI).....The selection process for fellows is highly competitive.
