The Religion Department oversees the Severinghaus Summer Internship Program, which supports students who wish to pursue internships in ministry or undertake the study of religion and/or the role of religion in society.

Students may elect to engage in research or hands-on work through positions with humanitarian or social action agencies, charitable or religious organizations or policy-based institutes.

Recently funded projects include internships with the The Street Child Project, Wheelchairs of Hope, Come Let's Dance, Bread for the World, Interfaith Hospital Network, and the Asian & Pacific Islander Coalition on HIV/AIDS.

This program is open to current Wellesley College first-years, sophomores and juniors.

The deadline to apply is in late February/early March.
