Internship, Scholarship, Conference, & Job Opportunities

 

Internship Announcements

Students can participate in an internship by enrolling in SOC 405, the Service Learning and Internships course, and they can earn up to a maximum of 8 units of elective credit for their sociology degree. A list of approved agencies and other program details can be obtained from the course instructor. 

For more information and for permission to enroll in SOC 405, contact Dr. Elaine Draper.

Scholarship Opportunities in the Sociology Department

Cal State LA offers over 300 scholarships. Most are awarded to students currently enrolled, and many are given to students pursuing specific majors. Sociology awards three such scholarships: the Francesca ("Kiki") Alexander, the David Miller, the Norman L. and Susan Schuller Friedman, and the Richard and Erika Nahrendorf Scholarships.

The Sociology Department is accepting applications for its scholarships.  Required forms are below in both word and pdf formats.

NOTE Submit your complete Scholarship Application by December 2 at noon to Professor Elaine Draper's faculty mail box (King Hall C-3093) and not to Financial Aid.  A complete Scholarship Application includes the original and one copy of (1) Scholarship Application form that includes the Letter of Recommendation form and an attached reference letter, (2) an essay, and (3) an academic transcript from your previous, non-CSULA, school (unofficial is OK) if you are a transfer CSULA student and your transfer coursework isn't yet on your CSULA transcript on the GET system.

University Scholarship Opportunities

To be considered automatically for all scholarships, file a General Scholarship Application along with a letter of recommendation in April of each year. Further details about specific requirements and qualifications can be obtained by contacting the Scholarship Office or the Department's Office Staff.

 

Conferences

Graduate and undergraduate students may participate in sociology or social science conferences.  For undergraduates, participating in a conference can be helpful in gaining admission to graduate programs.  The same is true for graduate students wishing to continue on to a PhD-level program.

Job Opportunities
