The Institute for Southern Studies/Facing South is seeking a communications intern to work with us this summer.

This paid summer internship will provide an opportunity for a Pell grant-eligible, undergraduate student to get hands-on experience with the Institute, with the nonprofit sector and in online communications.

Interested students can apply here. Applications are due by Feb. 2.

The communications intern will focus on helping the Institute enhance our online communications strategy, particularly around our website and social media platforms. The intern will also be able to help with the Institute's ongoing research and investigations on issues like environmental justice, money in politics, voting rights and demographic change.

We are seeking an intern with good digital media, communications, writing and research skills, who is interested in nonprofit media and shares our mission of building a more just, sustainable and democratic future in North Carolina and across the South.
