Grace Kulat - My Internship Experience

Sociology students have incredible opportunities to participate in internships and gain both professional development and Capstone credit for their major. Grace, a senior who is double majoring in SOC and Political Science, has been fortunate enough to work with her internship organization, Hope for the Day, for almost a full year! 

We asked Grace to share her internship experience and answer some questions for us:

  • How did you find this internship?

I found this internship on Handshake.

  • What do you usually do for the internship?

For my internship, I mainly focus on grant writing, which is the process of crafting a persuasive document, also known as a grant proposal, to convince a funding organization to support your project or program financially. In addition to writing grants, I research grants and work with the development team to create partnerships with companies outside of our organization.

  • What do you enjoy the most about your internship?

The best thing about my internship is being able to do meaningful work that makes a difference. By helping Hope For the Day receive funding I am helping the organization to empower the conversation on proactive suicide prevention and mental health education. Working for a non-profit is extremely rewarding because I am able to see the impact that the work I do has on other people.
