Know BEFORE You Apply
CELSJR can offer support in finding low-cost housing; typically, interns have either stayed with local relatives, or members of the greater New Orleans UU community has offered housing to interns.
Having a car is easiest as public transportation can be a challenge – but it’s also an option.
Interns are eligible for a stipend of no more than $1,500 from UUCSJ to assist with food, local public transit, and incidentals, depending on a variety of factors. Applicants are encouraged to seek other sources of funding, including grants from colleges and foundations, congregational support, and Faithify, or other crowd sourcing fundraisers.
From CELSJR staff: We are small organization of four staff. We have a cultural environment that is not rooted in traditional “office culture” and work hard to undo that.
