The R. Scott Hitt Foundation is offering funding for qualified candidates with the vision to be future leaders in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movement.
The pro-LGBT sponsoring organization that the interns choose to apply with will receive funding to compensate your internship position while you strengthen your resume and gain valuable skills toward becoming a leader of the future.
Pro-LGBT non-profits are encouraged to identify prospective interns and cooperatively submit an application packet.
The post-graduate internship is called the Scott Hitt Internship in Leadership Development. It is geared toward post-graduate students with a strong academic record. The grant is $20,000 for a 40-hour-per-week, seven to nine month internship at an LGBT non-profit. The applicant contacts host organization they want to work at and co-develops a successful curriculum encompassing these key elements: communications, fundraising, board development and grassroots policy. The deadline is May 7.
The undergraduate internship, known as the A.N.G.L.E. Southern California Internship, is a $4,000 grant for an 8-week internship at an LGBT non-profit in Southern California. The deadline is April 16.
To apply, visit and submit a cover letter, personal essay, resume and sponsor agreement.
