Opportunities for Students, Faculty, and Staff

Undergraduate Internships: The undergraduate internship experience at the Chris Walsh Center is a unique opportunity to support local families and educators, while working closely with a small team of FSU faculty, staff, students, and community partners. The center welcomes interns from a range of disciplines, including education, child and family studies, psychology, sociology, and more. Interns may be eligible for a paid internship through the CHOICE or Pathways funding programs. View the internship flyer.

Independent Study and Honors Thesis Research: The center welcomes students who would like to propose an independent study, honors thesis, or other research project with the center. The center coordinator, Dr. James Cressey, will review your request on a case-by-case basis and determine if it is aligned with the center's mission. View the independent study application.

Graduate Assistantships: Graduate assistants who are selected by the center earn a stipend of $2500, as well as two course vouchers per semester. We have filled our assistantship position for 2020-21. View the assistantship flyer.

For Faculty/Staff: As a new center, we are exploring partnerships with many departments and offices on campus. Please contact us if you are interested in discussing ideas such as internships, independent study, student-led research, service learning, school outreach, and community engagement. We also welcome proposals from faculty members who would like to share their scholarship related to our mission with the local community through our free, live-streaming webinar series.

Please contact Dr. James Cressey if you are interested in learning more about how to get involved!
