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 10-28, 2017 (Block I will be July 10-19, and Block II July 20-28). 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.
