Cultural Engagement Internships Program
The Cultural Engagement Internships program offers students at Fordham College Rose Hill and Fordham College Lincoln Center the opportunity to participate in paid internships at local nonprofits and cultural institutions. These internship opportunities are exclusively for Fordham students and they are supported by Fordham University.
These partner organizations not only give students the opportunity to gain valuable firsthand experience and broaden their networks, they also allow them to put Fordham’s Jesuit mission into action by partnering with our local community in their educational, cultural, anti-racist, social justice, and other important endeavors.
Launched in 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic, this initiative is meant to both provide new and important opportunities to our students as well as actively participate in the rebuilding of our New York City home and surrounding areas.
Who can apply for these positions?
All Fordham College at Lincoln Center (FCLC) and Fordham College at Rose Hill (FCRH) students are eligible for these positions.
How do I apply?
These specific organizations have developed deep partnerships with the Fordham College Rose Hill and Fordham College Lincoln Center deans’ offices. So while these internships do also appear on HandShake (the Office of Career Service’s job database), the opportunities will also be circulated to academic departments as well as directly to students who we believe could be a good match and have reached out with an interest in this kind of work.
What types of internships are available?
These paid internships are designed exclusively for Fordham students and paid for by Fordham. There are opportunities in the arts and humanities, education, communications, marketing, natural history, and more.
