Intern Program

The 2020 Satell Scholars Cohort

The 2020 Satell Scholars Cohort comprises seven multitalented and diverse undergraduate and graduate students driven by an interest in CSR. Their 12-week commitment to the Satell Institute has placed them in a position to learn firsthand from business and nonprofit leaders as well as utilize their broad range of skills and expertise on various projects supporting the mission of the Institute. They also have also made history as the first cohort whose Satell internship has been entirely virtual! Hear their reflections on their time as Satell Scholars in this video.

The Opportunity

Satell Institute 2020 Summer Internship Program

We are fully recruited for the 2020 summer internship program and are no longer accepting applications for this summer.

The Satell Institute ( leads the collective force of businesses and foundations partnering with nonprofits to serve the greater good. The Satell Institute has grown rapidly since inception and is in its fourth year of helping transform the CSR ecosystem in the greater Philadelphia area. Four years of growth have resulted in an extensive and growing network of businesses, foundations and nonprofits working to deliver strong impact in the area.

The 2020 internship program will focus on the Satell Institute experience in catalyzing the CSR ecosystem in the greater Philadelphia area. The project will examine CSR partnerships developed, and deliver meaningful stories of these partnerships and their impact. The project will analyze the businesses, foundations and nonprofits that constitute the Satell Institute network, the nature of the partnerships, observed impact and the catalytic role of the Institute. The analysis will be used to create feature stories, blog posts and visual stories for various internal and external platforms.

The program is seeking full- and part-time graduate students and rising seniors and juniors interested in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and the impact of businesses and nonprofits contributing to the greater good in communities. Satell Scholars have many opportunities to network with the Institute’s distinguished Advisory Board and membership, who are recognized practitioners of CSR.

Interns will need to be in the Philadelphia area to participate in cohort and networking activities.
