Cuentos internships generally last between 6 and 12 months and
are comprised of two parts:
1. Foundational Support: Interns are asked to
commit at least five hours a week to providing support to the
Foundation in one of the areas listed above.
2. An Individually Directed Project*: Part of
Cuentos’ mission is to empower and facilitate individuals
to achieve their goals. With this in mind, the second portion
of an internship is an individually designed project proposed
by the applicant. Cuentos encourages undertakings with a range
of orientations—from academic to the arts to community activism,
in keeping with our interdisciplinary traditions. Past Cuentos
internship projects include ethnographic studies on cross-cultural
communication, theater performances on immigrant experiences,
and educational community outreach programs.
*This portion of the internship is not required,
and therefore individuals wishing to fully devote themselves to
providing Foundational Support are allowed to do so. However,
instead of detailing a proposed individually directed project,
the application should describe in detail ideas about how they
would provide support in the specific area of their internship.
