The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HFG) seeks a dynamic, self-starter interested in working with a leading private Foundation to assist with program administration and communications efforts. This internship is an excellent opportunity to experience various aspects of program implementation and communications strategy while working in a non-profit work environment. The Communications Intern will work independently and with Foundation staff to fulfill organizational goals and initiatives related to programming, publications, and events.
The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation examines enduring and urgent problems of violence, such as war, crime, and human aggression. Through basic and applied research, we aim to understand the causes, manifestation, and control of violence. We spread this knowledge to inform policy, practice, and public discourse and to advance scholarship. The Foundation awards research grants to support distinguished and emerging scholars studying urgent matters of violence in the United States and around the world. We likewise conduct and commission original research and publish relevant research and policy reports. We host conferences, research seminars, and public conversations on topics of violence, often in collaboration with peers in academia, philanthropy, and civil society.
