School Profile: Boston University Yawkey Nonprofit Internship Program

Boston University’s Yawkey Nonprofit Internship Program, a selective program designed for sophomores and juniors, provides a living allowance stipend to support participation in unpaid internships at nonprofit organizations.

Fall or spring semester internships must be located in the Boston area. Summer internships may be outside of the Boston area if the organization’s mission is aligned with one of 6 broad issue areas on which the Yawkey Foundations focus.

In addition to facilitating students’ participation in unpaid nonprofit internships, the program provides an educational framework which strengthens the experience through a series of program components that help students to plan for, engage in, and reflect upon their internships.
