INTERNSHIPS 

MIRA offers internships to dependable undergraduate or graduate students who are willing to dedicate regular hours over a long period of time. Preference will be given to candidates strong research and writing skills. Interns are not required to have experience; however, interns must have an interest in immigrant and refugee rights and a desire to learn new skills on-the-job. Individuals of color and/or from directly-impacted immigrant communities are encouraged to apply. 

 

Internships are unpaid, although applicants are encouraged to apply for outside funding through grants and fellowships. 

 

Please see current internship positions available linked below. 

REQUIREMENTS

Interns must be willing to work a minimum of 10 hours a week and commit to a minimum of 3 month with a specific MIRA focus area.

Interns must have their own transportation.

Ideal applicants are those who enjoy building relationships with people from diverse backgrounds, very motivated, and can work independently with little supervision.  

To apply for an internship, please submit your resume and cover letter to rita@mira-mo.org. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and accepted until the position is filled. We will accept recently graduated students for full-time internships. At this time, MIRA cannot support student interns who are currently JD or MSW students. Please indicate which of the following internships you are interested in applying for:
