USC Shoah Foundation is looking for 40 students across the country in 7th– 11th grades representative of diverse backgrounds and academic skills who are interested in participating in its highly competitive William P. Lauder Junior Internship Program. The program provides a dynamic and unique learning opportunity to engage with testimonies – personal stories – from survivors and witnesses of genocide to develop their own voice.

The 2021-2022 Academic Year Internship Program will occur on ten Sundays between November and April, in-person and online. The deadline to apply is Oct. 29. Click here

for more information and to apply.


William P. Lauder Junior Interns will:

  • Learn to recognize the patterns and impact of hate

  • Gain work experience, as well as academic and digital skills, while profoundly engaging with testimony

  • Have the opportunity to apply learning through service programs

  • Develop their voice to counter hate–to become leaders with agency


This year’s program will be a hybrid experience until otherwise notified. Local students from Southern California should expect to meet virtually and in-person (once a month), while students outside of the region will meet virtually for every session.
