Susan Heck Summer Internship

Susan Heck, one of the founders of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research and former Clayman Institute Advisory Council member, had a keen interest in two particular issues. One was the importance of including undergraduates in the Institute’s work and providing them with mentorship. The other was assisting underserved populations, such as low-income individuals and women of color.

2022 Susan Heck interns

The Clayman Institute for Gender Research offers a dynamic and life-changing summer internship to Stanford University undergraduates. The internship combines the two issues Susan Heck was most passionate about by enhancing our training and mentorship of undergraduates while they work on a project of their choosing that focuses on an underserved population. 

The Susan Heck Summer Student Internship is open to Stanford undergraduates. During the internship, students will work on their own gender-related research project and attend weekly intern workshops and events. At the end of the summer internship program, Susan Heck interns will be expected to present their research to the Institute. In addition, interns will work with Clayman Institute staff members and researchers on additional projects, and will have the opportunity to get valuable research and work experience in a dynamic office environment.
