Internship Program

Prospect Hill Foundation InternsThe Prospect Hill Foundation created a paid internship program in the summer of 2013 as a way for undergraduate students to learn more about the inner-workings of philanthropy and the non-profit sector, as well as provide additional administrative support to the Foundation’s small staff of two.

Interns have the opportunity not only to develop a greater understanding of the philanthropic sector through hands-on experience, but also expand their knowledge of the Foundation’s grantmaking and grantees by attending webinars, site visits, community meetings, and convenings. To date, 23 interns have participated in The Prospect Hill Foundation’s internship program. The Foundation typically hires one to two interns each semester.

Interns must:

  • Currently be enrolled as juniors or seniors in college (or rising juniors or seniors);
  • Demonstrate an interest in a career in nonprofits/philanthropy;
  • Possess exceptional organizational skills, high attention to detail and accuracy, strong verbal and written communications skills, a self-directed and resourceful personality, and a great sense of humor; and
  • Be willing/able to work 10-15 hours per week

To learn more about and/or apply to the PHF internship program, please look for our internship postings on Idealist.org. Internship opportunities are traditionally posted in March (for the summer internship), August (for the fall internship), and November (for the spring internship).
