Summer Fellowships and Internships

Lois and Robert Green Internship

The Urban Development and Social Change Program is pleased to offer a paid summer internship for a continuing Clark undergraduate student, made possible by a generous endowed fund established by Clark alumni Lois and Robert Green.The Intern will assist a Worcester City Councilor or the staff of a Worcester city government agency or non-profit organization with a variety of projects and activities aimed at addressing issues of concern to residents of Worcester. The stipend for the internship is $2,800 for six weeks of full-time work (35-40 hours per week) or part-time work over a longer period of time, to be completed between May 23rd and August 15th, 2016.


All current juniors, sophomores, and first-year students who will be continuing their studies at Clark next year are eligible for the internship. Students who have declared the UDSC concentration and/or have taken a UDSC course are especially urged to apply and will be given preference in the selection process; applications from other students are also welcome and will be given serious consideration.

Application Procedures

During the application process, forms can be picked up in Jefferson 220 B (in the Geography main office). Students will be notified once this process begins again for the summer of 2017.
