Summer Internship Opportunities!

11th Hour Racing, a Newport RI-based organization, is committed to an innovative approach blending sport sponsorship and philanthropic giving to protect the health of our oceans and waters.

We are looking for three college students interested in grantmaking, philanthropy, and, ideally, the intersection of sport and ocean health to join our team for Summer 2021. The internships are in the three areas of our small in-house grantmaking team, our in-house communications/marketing team, and our in-house sponsorship management team.

Marketing and Public Relations Intern
You will be involved in a range of marketing activities related to 11th Hour Racing’s external communications projects. You will work on developing campaigns related to 11th Hour Racing’s grantees, ambassadors, and sponsorships that focus on ocean health. You will interact closely with 11th Hour Racing staff members and be given responsibilities based on experience and skills.

Grantmaking and Research Intern
You will work on a range of issues related to grantmaking in the fields of experiential and STEM education, marine plastic pollution, coastal restoration, and technologies and best practices to advance ocean health and address climate change. You will interact closely with 11th Hour Racing staff members and engage with a wide range of grantees and be given responsibilities based on experience and skills.

Sponsorship Intern
You will work with our small in-house sponsorship management team and will get hands-on experience related to delivering and activating sport sponsorships. In addition to the weekly schedule, you will need to be available full-time from approximately July 10-July 19 to assist with delivering a particular sponsorship event.

The internships are hourly, paid part-time roles in the 11th Hour Racing offices; final schedule to be agreed between intern and company. The internship can be taken for course credit as well if the student so desires. These positions are based in Newport, RI.

Applicants must submit a resume and cover letter through; applications missing either will not be considered
