Paid Internships through the CFV

Trying on work through an internship is a great way to discern (the ability to judge well) your calling. The Center offers internships in faith-based, social justice and nonprofit organizations at the Center for Faith and Vocation and in the greater Indianapolis area. These are opportunities to discover work that is meaningful to you both personally and professionally. We encourage you to reflect on the passion and energy that inspire you.

Ideal internship candidates are sophomores, juniors, and seniors. We recommend that entering students spend their first year at Butler exploring questions of faith and calling through their courses, attending BCR programs such as the Butler University Seminar on Religion and Global Affairs and A New View Film Series, and in discussions with faculty and staff advisors and with new friends on campus. These experiences can provide a strong foundation for landing a great internship through the CFV. As part of the internship, the CFV will provide opportunities for vocational reflection, using the internship as an opportunity to reflect on the intern’s future direction and decisions.

Internships will run from beginning to end of each semester for 10–12 hours per week at $14.00 per hour. Interns are required to write one 250–500-word blog or personal essay about the experience at the end of the internship.

Internships qualify for Indianapolis Community Requirement (ICR). Contact Center for Citizenship and Community for more information.

Note: Only fully enrolled Butler University students are eligible to apply for CFV Internships.
