Forest Foundation Undergraduate Summer Internship Program
Forest Foundation believes in fostering the next generation of public service leaders by investing in them through a comprehensive summer experience at a non-profit organization.
The Forest Foundation Undergraduate Summer Internship Program can be a multi-year, co-curricular experience. We accept applicants regardless of disability, nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual preference.
Grant Writing: After receiving training, interns will work in teams and write a grant proposal for a small local non-profit agency and present the grant to the Forest Foundation Board of Trustees for evaluation
Independent Project: Aside from general internship duties, our interns are required to complete a summer long independent project for their agency. The goal of the project is to benefit the hosting agency while providing the intern with an individual, internship-long initiative utilizing administrative and intellectual skills
