Internships and Fellowships

Grinnellians and Winners

Grinnell Prize winners continue to be involved with the Grinnell community through a variety of ways. Grinnell College students have the opportunity to intern with the winners' organizations, immersing themselves in the work of social justice practitioners and gaining a deeper understanding of the projects the Grinnell Prize supports. In addition to student internships, Grinnell College staff have the opportunity to volunteer with a Prize winner and their organization. By working with winners' organizations and the winners themselves, staff gain insight and understanding of the people and projects the Grinnell Prize supports.
