Description:
The Endangered Language Fund (ELF), a non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation and revitalization of endangered languages, has an opportunity for an unpaid internship at our New Haven, Connecticut, office. Duties would include updating of the ELF website, editing the newsletter, tracking progress of grants, maintaining the ELF Facebook page, and a variety of other tasks. This is a great opportunity to learn about language documentation and language endangerment, as well as non-profit management. It is also a good way to explore possibilities for graduate school; previous interns are currently finishing degrees at Michigan and the City University of New York. Hours are flexible; previous interns have had outside paying jobs as well as volunteering, but the intern should spend 10-20 hours per week in the ELF office in New Haven. To apply, please send a resume and a list of two references (letters are not needed at this time) to elfhaskins.yale.edu.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
