Apply To Be An Intern
Applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Undergraduate Interns are expected to:
- Work three hours per week at the Prindle reception desk when the University is in session.
- Attend a one-hour weekly meeting with the Lead Intern, Prindle Graduate Fellow and the Director/Assistant Director of the Institute to discuss ethical issues and campus or current events relevant to the Institute and its aims, and to advise on student involvement at the Institute.
- Attend a half-day retreat at the beginning of the academic year.
- Assist with and attend events hosted/sponsored by the Institute, primarily the Undergraduate Ethics Symposium, but other symposia as needed.
- Attend 50 percent of the Prindle-sponsored events.
- Serve as campus ambassador for the Institute.
Candidates must be full-time students for the 2013-2014 academic year. The position is open to all majors, all years. Preference may be given to candidates who can commit to working the entire academic year, but students who will be off campus one semester during the academic year are still invited to apply. Candidates must have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and be in good academic standing with the University.
Undergraduate interns will receive a $350 stipend each semester they work.
The application packet must consist of a resume, "unofficial" academic transcript (from e-services), the names of two faculty references, and a response to the following prompts: Identify and briefly explain a significant ethical dilemma/issue/question and why you think it is important. Separately, identify a pressing ethical issue on DePauw's campus that you believe would be a good topic for a public forum (each no more than 500 words). Applications are due no later than Wednesday, March 6. Please either e-mail your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred), use campus mail, or personally deliver your application to Linda Clute, Assistant Director, The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics.
Selected candidates will be invited for an interview with the selection committee, consisting of the Director, Assistant Director, and Graduate Fellow. Results will be announced on or before April 1.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Linda Clute, Assistant Director, The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics by e-mail (email@example.com) or by phone.
