College Sport Research Institute (CSRI) Internship Program

| No Comments

The College Sport Research Institute (CSRI) Internship Program allows
students/individuals from any academic discipline the ability to gain
practical research, development or event-management experience.

Consistent with the mission and goals of CSRI and the Scholarly

Conference on College Sport, we welcome both undergraduate and graduate
students who have an interest in college sport, college-sport research,
event-management, development, or education to apply for the internship
program. Internships can be structured for course credit.



Commitment and Compensation



CSRI internships are flexible, in regard to time commitments. Presently,
research and event-management internships are unpaid. As a result we
recognize interns in these positions may need to secure additional part-time
employment. Therefore, the minimum time commitment for research and
event-management interns is 20 hours/week. Since development internships are
paid - based on a percent (20%) of developed memberships, donations, or
sponsorships - the minimum time expectation for these internships is 30
hours per week. However, if interns require a specified number of hours to
satisfy course credit requirements, CSRI can accommodate such a need.



Research Internships (Three - [3] Internships)

Development Internships (Two [2] Internships) _Paid

Event-Operations Internships (Two [2] Internships)



How to Apply



Internship applicants must submit an application packet that includes:




Resume specifying academic standing and GPA



Letter of interest detailing: Previous experience, Education & Rationale for
applying



Three letters of recommendation (one from a previous professor)



Send all appropriate paperwork to:

CSRI Internship Coordinator

NGOabroad Opportunities For Social Work Students

| No Comments
NGOabroad: International Careers & Volunteering is a unique service that
helps social workers enter or advance in international humanitarian work and
provides frugal, customized international volunteering.

NGOabroad has several opportunities to stretch your social work skills. Communities in
Uganda, Ghana, Kenya, or Cameroon are in need of good people. People who
have experience in sexual abuse or assault, in trauma work, and work with
youth are needed. Using sports, music, drama & dance as therapeutic
modalities will fit especially well as talk therapy is not a good fit in
African culture. There are also amazing opportunities in Chile and Bolivia
for youth workers, mental health workers, and those trained in counseling
torture victims.
