Making HERstory Interns
Applications for our 2020 Making HERstory Interns are open!
*These positions are for current Shadhika Scholars only.
Each year, college-age young women participating in Shadhika grantee partner sites across India are invited to apply for a ten-month, paid Making HERstory internship. Through a competitive interview process, interns are selected and receive stipends of up to $100 per month to receive content development training and in turn, provide blogs, videos, photography, and poetry about their lives and the key issues faced by young women in India. Their content is published across Shadhika platforms, reaching an international audience. While interns are contributing content, they also receive skill-based training and mentoring from Shadhika’s India-and US- based staff, as well as female media professionals working both in and outside India. Over the course of the year, interns engage with topics such as blog writing, social media, photography, videography, and storytelling. In conjunction with Shadhika’s Leadership for Change Summit, Making HERstory interns meet face-to-face to share their experiences and gain new skills from their mentors.
