If you are (or know of any) a Christian undergraduate or graduate with a passion for writing and for culture, and you are looking to spend a year – or part of a year – doing something different, you might consider doing a Damaris internship.

Research interns study the relationship between Christian faith and contemporary culture. For more information or to download an application form, visit www.damaris.org/interns.

Hope you have an amazing week
