Financial Support for Internships

The Center provides annual awards of up to $2,000 to assist Humphrey School students who have unpaid internships with a feminist organization, broadly defined, or an internship working on a feminist project in a non-feminist organization. Projects should serve women or advance gender equity. Funding is made possible through the generosity of Julia Henderson, a 1946 University of Minnesota alumna who held senior leadership roles at the United Nations and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. 

Student recipients will be required to complete a report on their internship upon completion. Any Humphrey School student currently enrolled in good standing in the master's programs in planning; public policy; human rights; or science, technology, and environmental policy is eligible to apply.

Please apply through the general Humphrey School internship application process, and be sure to answer the question on the application regarding how your internship will serve women or advance gender equity. Applications will be reviewed by a committee of Center faculty and staff.
