- Paid internships in non-profit organizations will be available to graduate students in the Gender, Leadership and Public Policy graduate certificate program for the next three years thanks to a $100K grant recently awarded to CWPPP by the Cummings Foundation as part of its "100K for 100" program. Starting this September, ten graduate students in each GLPP class will be offered this unique opportunity to intern at a nonprofit organization whose mission they support and gain valuable skills and experience. Because of the recent grant award, the GLPP graduate program will be accepting applications through June 30. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
