SCHOLARSHIPS AND DISCOUNTS
We are looking for several individuals to help us with social media content. In return for a stipend of $50 per week, we will ask you to create content to give a sense of what the day-to-day experience feels like. We prefer the format to be visual, but are open to other ideas, depending on your skills and interests.
If you are interested, please let us know in the “other” section of the application, including any skills or experience in creating content that you can bring to the project.
The stipend will be paid upon your return, with the successful completion of the project. You will retain ownership rights to the content you produce, giving us the right to use it.
If there was one thing I could change about the program, it would be… well, nothing!Dana H.
