2022 NCCEP Cooke Internship Application

    The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation has partnered with the National Council for Community and Education Partnerships (NCCEP) to offer one Cooke Scholar an internship stipend to work remotely with the NCCEP national office in Washington, DC during this summer 2022. 

    NCCEP supports the federal GEAR UP college access and readiness program. This is a unique and privileged opportunity to work within a national organization that advances college access through advocacy, training, and research.

    There is one internship position available for Cooke Scholars through this opportunity. 

    1. Communications Internship

    Applicants will be reviewed on best fit for the duties and needs of the internship, including relevant experience and skills as well as scholar goals and aspirations.

    This is a great opportunity for Cooke Scholars who are considering a career in education, nonprofits, policy, communications, marketing, event or project management, or college access.

    To apply, please complete this application, including uploading a cover letter and resume, by March 15.  

    Due to Covid-19, this position will be virtual. The dates of the internship are flexible, but the selected intern must complete 320 hours with NCCEP between June 1, 2022 and August 31, 2022 and complete a final internship evaluation report at the end of the program.

    • Why you are interested in a position with NCCEP
