The Santa Monica College Faculty Internship Program is a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) initiative. 

This is a one academic year teaching internship program promoting quality instruction and DEIA in community college teaching. 

Intern Stipend

  • Interns will be paid a stipend of $1200.
  • The stipend is conditional on attending all mandatory events, and all Spring semester classes.
  • Two payments at the end of March and June. 

SMC will be selecting 20 interns. 

SMC is offering internships in the following disciplines: 

  • Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS)
  • Design Technology 
  • Health Sciences 
  • History/Ethnic Studies 
  • Life Sciences 
  • Mathematics
  • Physical Sciences

The SMC faculty internship program initiative will provide an opportunity for underrepresented and nontraditional candidates to be paced in fields where they can gain opportunities for career exploration. 

The internship program is open to all external individuals interested in teaching who may not have considered teaching at the community college-level. This program is currently not open to Santa Monica College employee.

The SMC faculty internship program is expected to improve the diversity pool of community college faculty at SMC and for our interns to become role models by reflecting DEIA principles with the SMC community.

Graduate interns will become a pool of diverse community college faculty who are sensitive to the needs of the students and community it serves who will then be prepared and available for future recruitment.
