Spring 2023 Bentley Nonprofit Internship Program – DEADLINE TO APPLY IS THURSDAY NOVEMBER 3rd

We are excited to announce that the application for the Spring 2023 Bentley Nonprofit Internship Program is now live! This 70-hour, ten-week internship runs in conjunction with a three-credit course (SO 421), and student interns will receive a stipend for their participation in the program.

In the spring semester, we are pleased to offer up to fifteen internships with a variety of nonprofit and government partners. Both the class and the internships are slated to be in person; however, there may be a limited number of hybrid internship opportunities. Through this program, you will be able to apply the academic skills you are gaining at Bentley in a local nonprofit or government agency, in turn improving your own civic and citizenship skills.

Here is a link to the application.  

The application will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, November 3rd (note: there will be no extensions). 

This program is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Yawkey Foundation. Should you have any questions about the program or the application, please e-mail Nic OConnell in the Bentley Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Center at OConnel_Nico@bentley.edu.

Here are a couple tips for the application:

  • We would recommend that you answer the four free-response questions (on the final page) in a Word document before submitting. In the past, some students have been logged out while completing the final page, and they have lost their responses.
  • If you are selected for the program, you will be required to attend the weekly class; however, you will not be registered for SO 421 until the spring semester. Do not look for this course when registering for fall classes—it will not be available.
  • The BSLCE will host a Bentley Nonprofit Internship Program information session in on Wednesday, 10/26 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. This session will be held on Zoom, and pre-registration is required. Click here to register for the information session.


We look forward to reading your applications, and we hope you have a great week!
