The Opportunity

The Satell Institute Summer 2019 Scholars Program

The Satell Institute is offering a Summer 2019 Satell Scholars program. Through the program, students will gain meaningful and relevant nonprofit experience working with the Institute’s Think and Do Tanks. Satell Scholars will have an opportunity to network with the Institute’s distinguished Advisory Board and membership who are recognized practitioners of CSR. Students from Penn, Drexel, Haverford and Temple have participated in the Summer 2018 and Winter-Spring 2018-2019 cohorts.

The opportunity is open to full- and part-time graduate students and rising seniors. Scholars selected for the program will work on defined projects under the guidance of a mentor and will deliver meaningful results. The program is a good fit for candidates eager to learn more about the collective impact of businesses and nonprofits contributing to the greater good in their communities. 

The internship commitment will last three months (thirteen weeks) between May 2019 and September 2019. The start date can be flexible. Each three-month commitment must be completed between May 15, 2019 and September 30, 2019. This is a full-time internship for six interns who will form the 2019 Summer Scholar cohort. Interns will need to be in the Philadelphia area to participate in cohort and networking activities. The Satell Internship has offices in the Malvern/Great Valley area.

Internship opportunities include marketing and research internship projects.
