As part of their participation in the CHC, Tri-C students have the opportunity to complete one or more micro-internships prior to transferring to CWRU. In short, a micro-internship is a career exploration opportunity. Your micro-internship might be a short-term project; an informational interview with a professional in a field you are interested in pursuing; or a short-term research project with a professor. These experiences can accommodate busy schedules, because their time commitments range from 2 to 24 hours per semester; this flexibility allows CHC Students to continue working their part-time or full-time jobs and balancing a rigorous course load. CHC Students who successfully complete a micro-internship will receive a stipend up to $400.
CHC Students have completed micro-internships with the following organizations:
Western Reserve Historical Society
Cleveland Museum of Art
Tri-C Women’s and Gender Studies Department
Cleveland Rape Crisis Center
Veteran’s Administration (VA)
Swetland Center at Case Western Reserve University
