Do you want to change the world? Whether you’re already committed to a career at the intersection of mission and business, or curious how to apply your major’s skills towards social and environmental good, the 9-week Social Innovation Internship will: (1) Connect you to leading for-profit and nonprofit organizations for a rigorous and meaningful summer internship; (2) Provide UNH training in social innovation; and (3) Support you to mobilize your UNH peers during the school year. All this, along with a $3000 stipend!

The Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise selects a handful of idealistic, high-achieving, impact-focused student leaders for the Social Innovation Internship program.  Each intern works at a different host organization based on their skills and interests and reports to a supervisor at that organization. Interns spend the majority of the summer at their respective host organizations and occasionally come together as a cohort for trainings in social innovation and entrepreneurship. At a high-profile Showcase at the end of the summer, interns present on their experiences and their recommendations for how UNH can better support student change-makers and social entrepreneurs. Meet last year’s internship cohort and watch their Showcase presentations to an audience of over 100 people.
