The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation is the foremost Christian voice promoting Biblical earth stewardship, economic development for the poor through free markets and sound energy policy, and the proclamation and defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are seeking interns, volunteer and paid, for both semester and summer positions. Internships will include a wide variety of opportunities that will be tailored to each intern’s skills and interests and the needs of the Cornwall Alliance. All majors are welcome to apply. Applicants must be at least college juniors or seniors, recent graduates, or graduate students.
Interns must be motivated self-starters, capable of taking on a project and making it their own, and absolutely must have good writing skills. Interns will be active in the daily research and educational writing of the Cornwall Alliance and, depending on the field of study, may participate in social media outreach, database management, and website/blog content management, or graphic design. Those interested will have the opportunity to be published.
Competency in design software and WordPress is a plus but is not required.
Internships are flexible and can be from 15 to 30 hours per week. No relocation is required—interns may work from home. Academic credit may be offered depending on the requirements of the intern’s university. Paid interns will receive a stipend of up to $600 depending on the time they can commit; volunteer interns receive our sincere gratitude. All will have the satisfaction of contributing to our efforts to help the world’s poor while enhancing the fruitfulness, the beauty, and the safety of the earth, to the glory of God and the benefit of our neighbors.

Remember, your cover letter is where you sell yourself. Be honest and tell us why you are the best fit.
