Full-Time Positions

We currently do not have any openings.

Internship

Each quarter, the Stanford Center for Racial Justice invites applications for part-time internships from Stanford University law students, graduate students, and undergraduate juniors and seniors to support our work to address some of the most challenging problems in our country resulting from the history and persistence of racism. Students who have passion for the pursuit of innovative solutions to the myriad issues rooted in racism and the advancement of racial justice will find an internship at the Center educationally enriching and personally rewarding. Qualified applicants have excellent research, writing, and communication skills; are creative, detail-oriented, enthusiastic, and self-starters; and should have strong evidence-based knowledge of the history of racism in the United States and its consequences.

SCRJ interns will work with one or more of our staff members to advance our mission, support ongoing projects, and develop innovative solutions to address entrenched racial inequities in the U.S., particularly related to one or both of our current focus areas: education and public safety. Interns may be asked to conduct in-depth research, draft memoranda and public documents, create reports, collect, organize and analyze data, curate and edit media content, write blog posts, engage with stakeholders, organize events, make presentations, and collaborate with faculty, staff, and other interns on various projects.

Applications for Fall 2024 are now open! Please submit your materials by Sunday, September 8, 2024. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to Hoang Pham, Associate Director, at hgpham@law.stanford.edu.
