Summer Internships

Each year the Rosenfield Program provides stipends for summer student internships in the areas of public affairs, international relations, and human rights. These opportunities allow Grinnell students to apply their interest and education away from campus in a real-life job experience in the United States or internationally. 

Recent internships have allowed students to work in Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Nicaragua, South Korea, Cambodia, China, India, Bangladesh, Ecuador, South Africa, and many other locations. Recent Rosenfield interns have worked with: • The Trust for Public Land • White House, First Lady’s Office of Communication • Diplomatic Courier Magazine • Opportunity International • Planting Peace • National Trust for Historic Preservation, Diversity Initiatives • The Advocates for Human Rights • Office of Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Tom Harkin (D-IA) • Chicago Council on Global Affairs • Lambda Legal Defense • Food First • U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission • Prevent Genocide International
