The Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics and Public Responsibility will award several stipends to SMU students--graduate and undergraduate--who wish to spend a substantial portion of the summer of 2012 in a summer service project. This internship provides students with the support to develop and implement a community service project that addresses a significant need at the local, state, national, or international level. The work must take place in a non-profit agency, such as a social agency, a religious congregation, an educational or health care organization, or some other institution that offers a public service. You are responsible for locating a qualified placement site and securing an agency's agreement to participate. A helpful way to begin thinking about your internship is to consider a volunteer project that interests you. For those chosen as interns, the salary is $10.00 an hour for undergraduate students and $12.00 an hour for graduate students, for not more than 200 hours for the entire summer.
