The Serving Communities Internship Program (SCiP) offers meaningful, skill-based nonprofit internships to Alberta post-secondary students. You will gain skills, experience, networks, and a $1000 bursary, as well as the opportunity to help your community grow and thrive!
“SCiP allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and truly learn about myself and how to contribute to those around me. I gained many vital skills in communication, networking, event organizing and social media advertisement. It was worth every minute!”
Let’s get started!
- Check your SCiP eligibility. You must be a post-secondary student attending one of the 26 publicly-funded post-secondary institutions in Alberta.
- Register. Once registered you can start immediately!
- Search and start applying for SCiP internships. Don’t see something for you right away? Keep checking back. New SCiP internships are posted every week.
All SCiP internships are part-time, meaningful opportunities designed to offer mutual benefit to both interns and organizations.
Internships start at all times of the year and are available across the province. Some positions are also available virtually so you can complete them from anywhere.
*Students can only receive one bursary per program year (August 1 – July 31)*
