Interested in an internship which involves Language Revitalization? See below:

I am writing to let you know about an exciting opportunity for students to intern with Where Are Your Keys? this summer. Every year WAYK runs a Summer Intensive where we work closely with a host community to focus on one particular language. The summer of 2017 will be our 7th Summer Intensive!

With support from the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association, the Aleut Community of St. Paul Island, the Administration for Native Americans, the Aleut Foundation, the Central Bering Sea Fishermen’s Association, and other regional organizations, we will be headed to back to the Pribilof Islands! We’ll once again be spending the summer months (May 28th—August 20th) working with fluent speakers of Unangam Tunuu (also known as Aleut) on St. Paul Island, Alaska.

Our partner organizations are sponsoring at least three WAYK interns this summer. Although these positions are unpaid, all costs associated with the program (lodging, food, and transportation) will be covered by this funding. This is a unique experience in which participants will do the hands-on work of language revitalization. In addition to gaining proficiency in Unangam Tunuu, interns will receive training and practice with the WAYK method, language pedagogy, curriculum design, and project management.

We have just posted the application for these internship positions, and we are hoping that you will help us disseminate our application to motivated students, teachers, language learners, and language activists. To be clear, participants do not need training in linguistics. Past interns have focused on a variety of fields in their work and studies, such as language revitalization, languages, education, linguistics, anthropology, indigenous/native studies, neuroscience, computer programming, film production, theater, and more. We would love to have interns with a wide array of skills and interests join us this summer. The application window will close on January 23, 2017.

If you know students, learners, teachers, or language champions who might be interested in this opportunity, please direct them to our blog to learn more.

Thank you all,

The Southwest Tribal Native American Research Center for Health (NARCH) Program will sponsor a 2016 Summer Research Internship Program. Through this program we provide opportunities to engage American Indian students in significant and innovative health research and further explore careers in health sciences, public health, epidemiology or medicine.

Students wishing to apply to the internship program must meet specific criteria. They must be:

·       enrolled as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student in a health-related degree program at an accredited academic institution; and

·       in good academic standing according to their department guidelines.

Interested students must complete and submit an application packet which includes proof of tribal enrollment, copies of the most recent transcript and class schedule, a resume, and a 250-word statement of interest.

This is an 8-week paid internship. The NARCH program will work with students to determine their summer work schedule in the May-September 2016 internship period. There are only a few slots available each year, so selection is based on meeting the eligibility criteria, student’s academic record, and statement of interest. Preference is given to students who are members of tribes in New Mexico, Texas and Colorado.
