Careers in the Common Good Winternships (CCG Winternships)

Careers in the Common Good Virtual Winternships

Each winter break, Brown students have the opportunity to work on engaging, high-impact projects for social impact organizations and companies. The projects last only two weeks but provide students with hands-on experience with top-notch organizations, and employers with a pipeline of talented individuals who have the potential to feed into other internships or full-time positions. This program will offer exclusively virtual internships in January 2022.

Most internships run from January 3 - January 14, 2022.


Over 25 different non-profits and social ventures are offering remote January opportunities through the CCG Winternships Program. View all 2022 CCG Winternships opportunities


All participating students receive an award for participating in the program. Participants receive a base stipend of $300. 

Students with a high level of financial need will receive a supplemental gap award of an additional $200 or $300, depending on level of demonstrated financial need, bringing the total stipend to $500 or $600 for students on financial aid.


Applicants must be active Brown undergraduate students (students graduating in December 2021 are not eligible)

Students with all concentrations and work histories are encouraged to apply.

Previous participation in a SPRINT-funded program does not prevent you from participating in CCG Winternships. Students may participate in CCG Winternships and still apply for a BrownConnect Signature Program or other SPRINT funding in the future.

Students on financial aid receive preference in the selection process.
