Submit an online application here. You will be asked to upload a cover letter and resume for each internship.

Each cover letter should be a 1-2 page essay in  letter format describing a) why you want to work for this organization, b) your educational and career goals, c) any relevant experience you have, and d) a description of what you hope to learn or do in this position.

Application deadline: TBD

Please contact Alexandra Pflug with any questions.

Note to Bonner Scholars: You may only accept a Richmond Summer Internship opportunity if you do not plan on counting this summer as a summer of service. Please include in your cover letter that you are a Bonner Scholar and that you plan on fulfilling your summers of service in other years. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact Adetokunbo Adeshile or Jana Schroeder.

Should I submit a hard copy of my application?

  • No, please submit your application via the online application here.

Do I need to write a different cover letter for each organization?

  • Yes, we highly recommend that you tailor each cover letter according to the specific position for which you are applying.

To whom should cover letters be addressed?

  • You may address your cover letters to Alexandra Pflug.

How are interns selected?

  • A selection team will review the applications and select the top candidates to forward on to the organization. Applications will be judged by the quality of the mechanics and content of the cover letter and resume, as well as faculty recommendations and overall match between the organization's needs and the student's interests. The organization will then conduct interviews and make an offer to the student of their choice.

May I list a previous employer as a reference?

  • Please list Earlham teaching or administrative faculty who are familiar with your work and academic performance.

Will my references need to provide a letter of recommendation?

  • You will need to provide us with the name, Earlham email, and phone number of each reference. They will not need to write letters of recommendation, but should expect to receive a request from the Center of Integrated Learning to answer brief questions about you and your application.

Will housing be provided with the internships?

  • The Center for Integrated Learning may be able to facilitate the search process, but you are ultimately responsible for finding housing. However, your pay should cover living expenses. You may consider whether friends or family in the area may be willing to host you for the duration of the experience. 

Will transportation be provided to the internship?

  • The Center for Integrated Learning may be able to facilitate finding a transportation solution, but you are ultimately responsible for having transportation to your job site. 

Should I contact the organization if I have additional questions?
