Becket’s undergraduate internship program allows top communications, media arts, and pre-law students the chance to litigate high profile religious liberty cases in the court of public opinion.
We equip our interns with the experience needed to excel in their future career, and to advance religious liberty in their professional future. We do this by teaching the legal and historical foundations of “religious liberty for all,” and providing training in an environment where they can work alongside fellow interns from the nation’s best schools and Becket’s team of experts. Each intern will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a Becket’s mentor to develop a summer work plan and receive feedback.
Becket interns collaborate with the communications, legal, operations and management teams to gain experience in non-profit management as well as subject-matter knowledge of religious freedom.
How to Apply
To apply for an internship at Becket, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and attach the following information:
- A cover letter with an emphasis on why you believe religious freedom is important
- A resume
- A writing sample and/or sample of photography or videography skills
- A list of references (recommendation letter a plus)
We accept applications from incoming juniors and seniors beginning November 1st. Applications are due by December 15, 2019. Ideal candidates will have excellent writing and editing skills and must have a keen interest in religious liberty. We look for, but do not require, candidates with an interest in fundraising and general organizational management, photography, social media, and videography experience; experience using Adobe photo and video editing software is a plus.
The internship is a ten-week program with flexible start and end dates. Interns will receive a stipend to contribute to their living expenses.
This internship surpassed all my expectations! The most rewarding part was being able to be immersed in the world of religious liberty and understand cases both from a legal and communications perspective. I know the connections and knowledge I gained are going to be extremely beneficial in the years to come!
