Who We Work With

Post Internship Opportunities

Fall Grant Program

The Fall Grant Program was created to encourage Forest Foundation interns’ involvement in their college or local community, to further develop their grant writing skills, and to increase personal connections to local non-profit agencies. Past interns can select a non-profit in their community (hometown, college, anywhere in the USA), engage the agency, identify a funding need, and write a $1,000 grant proposal.

All proposals are to be submitted by December 1, 2016. The most compelling and significant proposals will be granted $1,000 each. We typically fund 10 proposals but will consider more if they are exceptional!

Second Year Internships

Upon successful completion of a First Year Internship, students are invited to apply as Second Year Interns. This is a unique opportunity for a Forest Foundation intern to further their exposure and commitment to non-profits, expanding their co-curricular undergraduate college career to include two summers working and interning at non-profit agencies.

A second year intern has the opportunity to create and self direct an internship position at a single non-profit or combination of agencies. The locations are geographically restricted to Greater Boston.
