Immigrant Scholar Internship Program

The Leah Zallman Center (LZC) Immigrant Scholar Internship Program (ISIP) is designed to offer immigrant scholars* the opportunity to participate in LZC studies and inform the direction of the Center. We aim to fill three paid rotating slots on a semi-annual basis (summer and fall/spring) so that we have a consistent cohort of bachelor’s/associate’s, master’s, and doctoral students working together at the Center. We work closely with interns to provide opportunities to develop their career and research interests through mentorship, supervision, and meaningful project work. This program is generously funded by private donations to the Leah Zallman Center.

This is a remote position with the occasional in-person opportunity for fieldwork, community engagement, or team building. We work closely with interns to provide opportunities to develop their career and research interests through local and national educational and engagement opportunities, mentorship, supervision, and meaningful project work.
