Carlson Center Undergraduate Community Based Internships: APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR SPRING/SUMMER COHORT

The Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center is excited to announce that student application materials for our Undergraduate Community Based Internship (UCBI) program are now available on our website.  With special funding from the UW Doorway Project, the Spring/Summer 2018 UCBI program will focus on supporting youth and young adults experiencing homelessness in the U-District of Seattle and surrounding areas. UCBI provides undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in paid community based internship experiences with non-profit and public sector organizations during both spring and summer quarters. Internships begin March, 27 2018  and conclude August 17, 2018.  


The Undergraduate Community-Based Internship (UCBI) program, developed in partnership with the UW Career & Internship Center, provides opportunities for undergraduates to grow professionally and personally, examine issues of social justice, gain an understanding of the diverse communities in Seattle and explore career paths in the public and non-profit sectors.


More information and application materials may be found on the Carlson Center’s web site at The online application for the program is now open and applications must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Monday, February 20.  All organizations for the spring/summer cohort focus on serving homeless youth and young adults.  Applicants will have the opportunity to select the organization(s) they are most interested in interviewing with AFTER their general application materials are submitted.
