Due to limited resources, the Global Justice Center encourages interns to seek outside funding or university course credit for their internships. In the event that outside funding cannot be secured, the Global Justice Center will provide a modest, one-time stipend to help defray living costs. The internship stipend is not considered salary or meant as work compensation. Accepted interns will receive more information regarding stipends upon their acceptance notice.
The Global Justice Center is committed to diversity and inclusion, and is actively seeking and encouraging applications from women, people of color, individuals with disabilities and/or people who are LGBTQIA. We believe that advocacy is strongest and most effective when it reflects a range of perspectives and diverse backgrounds, particularly those who have historically been marginalized or underrepresented. As an equal opportunity employer GJC will consider all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
