CILLDI Summer School Internship Program

The CILLDI internship program began in the summer of 2012. Our internships are flexible positions, with room for creativity and personal initiative.

CILLDI interns will be assigned to a summer school class in one or two blocks. The dates of this year's Summer School are July 9-27, 2018 (Block I will be July 9-18, and Block II July 19-27). Intern responsibilities may include:

  • Assisting students (with work, questions, etc) and providing administrative support to instructors
  • Helping with the organization of social events
  • Being a UofA campus ambassador: showing students from out of town where to find classes, residences, and administration buildings
  • Contributing to record-keeping projects (we may ask you to take photos or video)

We welcome applicants with a wide variety of skills. While a background in Linguistics, Education, Native Studies, or Anthropology is not necessary to succeed as part of CILLDI, a commitment to the preservation of linguistic diversity is. With this in mind, we appreciate applicants from all academic backgrounds and all levels of education.

The Internship Application form can be found here or on the Forms page. The application deadline is Friday, April 6, 2018. Please send completed forms to the CILLDI office by email, fax, or mail by that date. (Visit the Contact Us page for our address and fax number)
