The Bard Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) Community Action Awards support student efforts to engage with communities locally, nationally, and internationally by providing funding for participation in internships that address issues impacting people around the world. Students pursue internships in their chosen field or area of interest and apply for stipends to defray the costs for unpaid internships.
Application deadline has been extended to April 5.
Worldwide internship placements include community organizations; local, state or national government agencies and offices; international governmental and non-governmental organizations; media, public policy, and non-profit organizations; and educational projects or programs.
Awards provide funding (maximum award is $3,000) in two categories.
- Internships that support pre-professional experiences,
- Community action projects that address issues related to the broad field of civic engagement, including education, government, justice, human rights, media, public policy, and social entrepreneurship.
