Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Stipends to North Carolina full-time IHE students to participate in a summer internship. Funding is intended to expose interns to experiences in a variety of subject areas, including public policy, social media, research, fundraising, communications, and community outreach.

Details and workplans for each intern vary by organization; however, host organizations must provide the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation with a workplan that ensures a rewarding experience, substantive opportunities, and adequate supervision for their intern.

In addition to the internship, students will have the opportunity to connect with other interns in the program and participate in on-going professional development throughout the summer.

ZSR Staff coordinate the Non-Profit Internship Program, which entails overseeing candidate recruitment, confirming interns/site matches, authorize grant payments to host sites and organizing professional development opportunities for interns during the summer. ZSR Staff also oversee the fulfillment of the NPIP Program Agreement Form. Host organizations that meet eligibility requirements have purview over interviewing, matching with, supervising, and paying interns.

Estimated Size of Grant:

- Interns receive a taxable stipend of $3,200.
- Any additional compensation beyond the $3,200 stipend must be in accordance to agreement between the host organization and the intern and is the responsibility of the host organization.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible students must be:
- A rising sophomore, junior, or senior enrolled full-time in a four-year North Carolina college or university; OR
- A rising sophomore, junior or senior North Carolina resident enrolled full-time in a four-year accredited college outside the state; AND
- Pell grant-eligible in the academic year in which they apply for NPIP. As a part of the application process, students will be asked to upload their Student Aid Report verifying their Pell grant eligibility. Students can access this document through their FAFSA login. Students ineligible for a Pell grant due to documentation issues or criminal conviction may be eligible and should contact the funding source.

Students of color are encouraged to apply.

Students attending an NC college or university on an education visa may qualify if they are receiving need based financial assistance from their college or university. If a student does not have an education visa and has qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the student qualifies.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for students to apply for an NPIP internship is February 17, 2020 at 12:00 PM (noon).

Once a student's eligibility has been verified, his or her application will be forwarded to the appropriate organization(s). This begins the Matching Period, which lasts a few weeks. During this period, organizations will review received applications, decide whom to interview, and make arrangements with the students to conduct interviews. Once an organization has decided on their intern, they will send the student a Program Agreement Form to complete and sign. (Note: A student may receive multiple offers, but can only accept one internship.) The Matching Period culminates on Match Day, when organizations submit their signed Program Agreement Forms to the ZSR coordinators, signifying a "match."
