Canale Internship Fund for Community Service and Leadership: May 1 Deadline

Supported by the Canale endowment, students pursue a community service internship of their choosing. The internships are projects that benefit the greater Sewanee community, while also developing the individual intern's leadership, communication, emotional, and analytical skills. Interns are self-directed but receive assistance from a mentor and the Outreach Office of the University. Internships take place during the academic year and interns are expected to spend at least 8 hours a week on their projects.
