University-based Student Opportunities
The NC COVID-19 Student Response Corps is a collaborative effort to match students with local governments and nonprofit organizations in need of additional capacity. Opportunities for high-impact work span across the state and may help communities and organizations respond to COVID-19.
There is now a publicly available list of unfilled opportunities, which updates automatically when opportunities are added/filled. Students should contact internship hosts directly to apply.
This effort has already placed approximately 90 interns in positions across the state, and many additional organizations have requested an intern. Some of the opportunities are paid and some are remote. You can read more about the initiative here.
Please reach out to Caroline with any questions regarding this initiative.
