INTERNSHIPS

Overview

The E.WE Foundation’s Internship Program is aimed at inspiring the next generation of health and advocacy workers in the rare disease space while achieving greater health equity for people of color living with rare diseases. This Internship allows us to collaborate with interns to better understand the health impacts of Edwards Syndrome, Trisomy 18, and other rare diseases.

Summary

The E.WE Foundation will soon recruit interns for our 2023 Rare Disease Internship Program. Once accepted, interns will each be matched with a leader of our development team for a period of 3-12 months. The Internship is open to undergraduates who have a demonstrated interest in addressing rare disease disparities. Individuals from racial and ethnic populations and/or underserved communities, such as individuals with disabilities or living with a rare disease, will be given priority consideration. Any final projects should be presented to the E.WE Foundation Board of Directors upon completion of the Internship. Required meetings and weekly time commitments will be determined by the E.WE Foundation.

Internship Activities & Educational Requirements

Interns will be responsible for completing projects and activities assigned to them by their respective coordinator. The E.WE Foundation may also assign the interns projects that will support the mission of the E.WE Foundation. The interns will participate in a virtual orientation at the beginning of the Internship and will subsequently engage in monthly learning sessions with a group of rare disease experts who are partners of the E.WE Foundation.

Stipend

Participating interns will receive a stipend of an undisclosed amount for their participation in the program from the E.WE Foundation. Sponsors are still be finalized. *Note: Receipt of full stipend is contingent upon program participation and completion.
