The Next Wave Intern Program provides support for key internship opportunities for LGBT students of color currently pursuing a degree at accredited colleges and universities. The program also provides support for LGBT organizations which wish to provide such opportunities.
The program is managed by The Pipeline Project, and supported by the David Bohnett Foundation, the H. van Ameringen Foundation, and an anonymous donor. For the 2012-13 cycle, we anticipate selecting candidates for up to 10 internship opportunities in the fall 2012 and winter 2013 academic terms.
