The mission of the Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing (ISGMH) at Northwestern University is to connect scholars from numerous disciplines with the sexual and gender minority (SGM) community to forge collaborations and stimulate innovative research to improve SGM health and wellbeing. Directed by Dr. Brian Mustanski, ISGMH consists of three programs: CONNECT Complex Systems and Health Disparities Program; Evaluation, Data Integration, and Technical Assistance Program; and IMPACT LGBT Health and Development Program.
Internship applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Interns who can commit to approximately 10 hours a week over 6 months are preferred. Internships are unpaid but may be completed for school credit.
ISGMH is not seeking interns at this time. Please check back for future opportunities!
Northwestern University students may be able to apply for summer internship funding through the Summer Internship Grant Program.
Please note that we are unable to accept internship applications from current ISGMH research study participants. We appreciate your interest and wish you luck in your internship search!
