2021 Internship – Call for Applications

Reviving Islamic discourse among Muslim women

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

The Qarawiyyin Project is recruiting interns to support our work and grow our network! Starting in September for three months, interns will have the opportunity to publish their work and attend training on every facet of the project, including writing, social media, podcasting and more.

Our contributors hail from various educational, professional, and national backgrounds. So whether you’re a high school student or a young professional, this internship offers you opportunities to network with a global community of sisters and learn about the operations of an online publication.

To apply for an internship, fill out our application form and select which position you’re applying for. Each application is limited to one position; you may submit a separate application for another position. Please note that this is an unpaid opportunity, as the Qarawiyyin Project is a volunteer-based endeavour, and we are only accepting applications from Muslim women.

Applications close on the 1st August and interviews with successful applicants will be held in mid-August. The available roles and responsibilities are outlined below. For any questions about the application, please email us: contact@qarawiyyinproject.co.
