What is SIP

 

COVID-19 Update

It is our intention to run SIP as we have in years past with in person placements and immersion days. However, we recognize that COVID-19 may make this difficult. We will work with employers and interns to provide the best and safest program possible for all participants. This may mean that some internship placements may be virtual, while others will be in person.

What is SIP

The Cleveland Hillel Foundation Summer Internship Program (SIP CLE) is a unique paid summer internship program open to Jewish students who will be going into their junior or senior year in the fall.  If selected and hired, interns work for ten weeks and participate in innovative programming including exclusive excursions around Cleveland, professional development seminars, and opportunities to interact with civic and community leaders.

 

Fulfilling Our Mission

The mission of our program is to place talented college students in challenging PAID summer internships and to provide programming that immerses them in Cleveland and encourages them to choose the greater Cleveland area to live, work and play upon graduation.

 

Program Highlights

This program is the best way to gain critical workplace skills while experiencing Cleveland’s renaissance.  It’s a great way to build your resume, earn money, socialize with your peers, and enjoy fun and enriching programs. We hope you will join us for a summer to remember!

 

Program Details

The 2021 internship dates are June 1st-August 6th. A mandatory program orientation will be held on Tuesday, June 1st. Internships will begin on Wednesday, June 2nd. The program will conclude on Friday, August 6th.  Accommodations are made for those on the quarter system or ending later than June 1st. Interns work full time in supervised placements and are required to participate in Cleveland immersion programming over the course of the summer. The programming days include professional development seminars, exclusive excursions all around Cleveland, and opportunities to interact with guest speakers and community professionals.

 

Eligibility

Candidates must have completed two years at an accredited college or university and will be entering their junior or senior in the fall of 2021. 

We do not accept students who are older than 22 years at the start of the program.

This program is for Jewish students or those who are interested in becoming a part of the Jewish community. Candidates must get hired by an employer to be a part of the program.  Hillel does not guarantee that candidates will get hired. Hillel does not provide housing or transportation.

Candidates must be willing to attend the orientation and all planned programming.  These are not optional programs. Students can only participate in the program once. 

 

Internships

Given the most unusual circumstances and short notice due to the effects of COVID-19 on the 2020 SIP, we were still able to provide amazing, unique, and impactful placements for 17 interns at 12 different employers.

In a more "typical" summer, our placement numbers are much higher. For example, in the summer of 2019, 34 interns were hired by 29 different employers in over 18 different fields, including but not limited to, IT, accounting, legal, education, marketing, real estate, and bio-engineering. Some employers who have participated in the past include the following.
