Miller Center accelerates leadership by providing students with opportunities to learn and work with social entrepreneurs on the front lines of poverty eradication and sustainable development in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The fellowship is a fully-funded summer field experience along with two-quarters of classwork and academic research for Santa Clara University junior-level students.
Are you interested in a student internship working to support Miller Center and social enterprises around the world?
The internship program was created to provide exposure and access to the field of social entrepreneurship and/or impact investing for ALL Santa Clara students, regardless of year of study or program.
Summer is the primary period of enterprise and student internship; however, the internship may be available during the academic year. All work with social enterprises around the world is done remotely, and interns are paid by Miller Center.
The internship program is part of a larger SCU and student engagement strategy to engage 500 students per year by 2025.
The Miller Center Internship Program is designed to provide meaningful work opportunities and create a deeper engagement while creating a value exchange between Miller Center program alumni, partners, and Santa Clara University students.
All enrolled Santa Clara University, including Jesuit School of Theology, students, undergraduate and graduate, regardless of major, including graduating seniors, are eligible to apply.
