Spring 2015 Internship

Spring 2015 Internship at the Whitewater Valley Pro Bono Commission

My internship at the Whitewater Valley Pro Bono Commission provided me with a valuable, enjoyable hands-on experience that I can use in deciding what I want to do after graduating with the M.A. in English. For the internship, I wrote and revised Commission documents, researched and wrote grant applications, and strengthened my understanding of how a non-profit organization works. This earned me credits toward the M.A. while I was learning and doing things I would not have done in a conventional classroom setting

Summer 2014 Internship

Summer 2014 Internship at Cope Environmental Center (CEC)

My internship experience at CEC was definitely a positive one. During my 10 week internship, I did a lot of research for grants and information, as well as, some grant writing. I quickly discovered that a lot of time and effort goes into grant writing.

The grant research/writing projects that I focused on were for school programs at CEC. CEC works with more than 5,000 students a year who are eager to explore the environment and receive a unique hands-on learning experience. I was able to receive excellent communication and instruction from CEC’s Program and Development Coordinator. She always responded to my questions and emails right away. I learned so much about grant writing because of her knowledge.
