- I want to apply for a position but I don’t meet all of the technical qualifications. Should I still apply?
Yes, we encourage you to apply! We want people who are willing to stretch their skills and will provide you with enough support and mentoring for that to happen.
- Are your internships paid or unpaid?
As with all of our current positions, internships are unpaid and volunteer-based. However, we are willing to work with your school or university to help obtain academic credit.
- Are your internships in-person or remote?
HRC is a 100% remote-based organization, so interns work digitally with our team of collaborators.
- Where are HRC headquarters?
In order to comply with 501(c)(3) status in the United States, our associated organization address is listed as Washington, D.C., but HRC operations are entirely digital-based.
- Do you offer any grants or scholarships to students?
No, HRC does not offer financial assistance such as grants or scholarships.
- Can students receive college credit through one of HRC’s internships?
No, students don’t earn college credit for an HRC internship. While our internships offer an extended learning experience, HRC isn’t affiliated with higher educational institutions. However, we are willing to work with your university or college decision to arrange academic credit if you are eligible.
- What is the time commitment for one of HRC’s internships?
The weekly number of hours averages around 10-15, but we don’t utilize a monitoring system to track intern’s hours. Since this is an unpaid volunteer-based position, we are mindful of professional, academic, and social schedules. It is likely that your time commitment will vary depending on projects and tasks.
- How does an HRC internship benefit me?
You will receive hands-on experience working with a dynamic, diverse and international team. If you’re interested or passionate about human rights and civil resistance, then this is a great learning opportunity for you. Join us
