Internships: The Slocum Foundation hosts interns interested in any of our three pillars of work: research, education and community benefit activities. We currently offer internships to Master's students studying at the University of Oregon in the Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management. Students from out-of-area universities and other local programs have also interned with the Slocum Foundation. Students interested in an undergraduate or graduate internship with the Slocum Foundation should send a resume, cover letter and one writing sample (e.g. college paper) to sref@slocumfoundation.org.

Examples of past internship projects include:

  • Development of a physical literacy curriculum for 1st through 3rd graders in partnership with KidSports (Univeristy of Oregon)
  • Development and execution of a research project examining the outcomes associated with bilateral total knee replacement (Middlebury College, VT)
