CLAGS seeks Memberships and Fellowships interns

Please read below for information about the internship opportunities with the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center. Although these are not research internships per se, CLAGS is an outreach and research organization, and working there would provide a student with insight into the work that takes place at a research center.

The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center (CLAGS) is looking for Memberships and Fellowships interns.  We would be happy to work with colleges to create internships for which students receive class credit.  

CLAGS was founded in 1991 as the first university-based research center in the United States dedicated to the study of historical, cultural, and political issues of vital concern to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and communities. By sponsoringpublic programs and conferences, offering fellowships to individual scholars, and functioning as an indispensable conduit of information through the International Resource Network, CLAGS serves as a national center for the promotion of scholarship that fosters social change.

Much of what goes on in the CLAGS office is fairly standard administrative and clerical work.  The most basic intern tasks would be:

  • help with photocopying
  • scan and digitally store Past Fellowships Recipient applications
  • generate renewal and thank you letters
  • update donation records
  • update outreach venue lists
  • help prepare and organize CLAGS events

We imagine the internship would require 10-15 hours/week but could be expanded depending on how much responsibility an intern wanted to take on.

Interns will receive free admission to all CLAGS events as well as complimentary books and other LGBT resources.
