UW Carlson Center: Internships

The Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center is excited to announce that student application materials for our Undergraduate Community Based Internship (UCBI) program are now available on our website. UCBI provides approximately 35 undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in paid community based internship experiences with non-profit and public sector organizations during both winter and spring quarters.

Internships begin January 7, 2019 and conclude May 31, 2019.


The Undergraduate Community-Based Internship (UCBI) program, developed in partnership with the UW Career & Internship Center, provides opportunities for undergraduates to grow professionally and personally, examine issues of social justice, gain an understanding of the diverse communities in Seattle and explore career paths in the public and non-profit sectors.
