Call for applications: Summer Internship in Lived Theology 2016

Summer Internship in Lived Theology 2016 #PLTinternsNow accepting applications for summer 2016

The Project on Lived Theology is now accepting applications for the 2016 Summer Internship in Lived Theology, an immersion program designed to compliment the numerous existing urban and rural service immersion programs flourishing nationally and globally by offering a unique opportunity to think and write theologically about service.

The internship is open to U.Va. undergraduate students in any field of study. Selected participants spend the summer interning with the partnering institution of their choice. Each intern works directly with a U.Va. faculty member who acts as a theological mentor, offering guidance in reading, discussing, and writing about selected texts. Each intern also has a site mentor who shapes his/her work experience and may act as a conversation partner in the intern’s academic and theological exploration. Throughout the summer, interns blog for the Project on Lived Theology website; at the end of the internship, interns complete a final project and present their work at a public event.

The deadline for application submission is January 19, 2016.

The 2015 summer interns gave their final presentations earlier this fall. Listen to Caitlin Montgomery on the Virginia Institute of Autism here, Rachel Prestipino on Because Justice Matters here, and Melina Rapazzini on New Hope Covenant Church here.
