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 $4,000 stipend!
Each spring 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 and externships at mission-driven organizations. 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 changemakers and social entrepreneurs.

Both Sustainability Fellows and Social Innovation Interns are outstanding students who complete high-impact sustainability projects for our mission-driven partners.
